Shipping container stolen from Abbotsford

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 19 Apr, 2024 10:13 AM
  • Shipping container stolen from Abbotsford

Police in Abbotsford say an elaborate operation would have been needed to steal a large shipping container from a rural property this week.

The department says the 12-metre long container disappeared during daylight hours on Monday.

Two flat-deck trucks with folding knuckle-boom cranes are suspected of being used to remove the container from the property.

Police say the owner of the heavy equipment may have been unaware it was a theft, and they're asking anyone with information to call them.
