Police were still on scene in an industrial area of Pointe-Claire this morning.
The heist took place last Wednesday, when a truck stolen from Montreal's west end drove off with a shipping container holding up to $10 million in silver from the port.
The container lifted from the port was found empty Saturday on a residential street in Repentigny.
Police said some of the stolen silver had been recovered.
