Stolen Transport Truck Investigation: Caledon OPP Charges Same Person Twice in a Week

Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have recovered a tractor trailer and charged an individual that was arrested and charged for a similar offence five days prior.

On September 6, 2022, Caledon OPP was alerted of commercial motor vehicle that was stolen out of the Milton area. The vehicle (the tractor part) travelled to the Town of Caledon and stole a trailer loaded with furniture. Officers located the vehicle, but the driver failed to stop. Black spray paint was used on the vehicle to cover the company name. The trailer was later dropped, and the driver continued attempts to evade police.
