Stolen Pick-Up Truck – Gas Drive Off
On Friday, October 25th 2019, a 25 to 30 year old male drove off with $113.01 worth of gas from Shell (Grey Road 28/Bruce Road 10) without paying. The man was driving a black Ford F150 with the Harley Davidson edition gold trim package. A post on our social media platforms with a photo of the truck resulted in a heavy outpouring from the public stating that this vehicle matches the description of one that had been stolen from the Williamsford area on October 23rd. Police services across the region have been notified and will continue to search for the suspect vehicle. Should you encounter the un-plated truck, contact 519-371-6911 to report its location to police.
