Hamilton police are searching for 40,000 pounds of beef that was stolen in Ancaster, Ont. earlier this week.

Sometime between Sunday at 5:30 p.m. and Monday at 2:15 p.m., a commercial truck yard was broken into in on Shaver Road in Ancaster. Once inside, suspects stole a tractor-trailer load containing $100,000 worth of beef, police say. The truck itself was also taken.

The refrigerated beef had been picked up in Texas and dropped off on Sept. 15. The beef was set to be delivered to a customer at the start of the week.

Police don’t yet know how the suspects got into the yard. The investigation is ongoing.

This is the second beef-related robbery in Hamilton this month. In early September, the police K9 unit was called in to chase down a man that had stolen $250 worth of steak on the Mountain.
