Trailer containing 'extremely large quantity of veal' stolen from North York parking lot
Toronto police asking for help in locating abundance of beef taken on Monday or early Tuesday
Toronto police are on the alert for a 16-metre trailer carrying "an extremely large quantity of veal" that was apparently stolen from a North York parking lot some time on Christmas Day.
The refrigerated trailer wasn't attached to a cab, so Toronto Police Service spokesperson Allyson Douglas-Cook said they're "not exactly sure" how the meat thief transported the spoils, valued at about $30,000.
The stolen meat comes encased in packaging from veal wholesaler White Veal Meat Packaging Ltd. The trailer itself is white with the company logo on the side — a blue "W" and the name "White Valley."
Toronto police don't often investigate cases of veal theft, Douglas-Cook said.
Police are asking the public for help in locating the trailer and its contents. "We're hoping someone will recognize the trailer," Douglas-Cook said, and suggested the meat might be sold on the sly.
She asked that shoppers keep an eye out for suspiciously good deals on veal. "You know — just in case someone's having a Boxing Day special in a parking lot somewhere," she said.
