In a news release on Wednesday, OPP said a truck driver using a fraudulent company and a stolen trailer showed up to the yard on Oct. 5 and loaded 11 Skyjack lifts and 25 red vinyl rolls.

The load was to be delivered to two separate locations in the United States but the items never arrived, police said.

Polcie say the fraudulent company name was listed under T.T. Transport out of Quebec and the stolen trailer had Elite Logix written on the side.

A photo of the driver and the truck has been released with the hopes of helping the investigation.
