Two truckloads of Mr. Freeze freezies were reportedly stolen from a freight yard in Brampton on Wednesday night.

Approximately 10,500 cases of Mr. Freeze Jumbos — an estimated wholesale value of $50,000 — were taken off freight carriers, says Mark Josephs, the president of supplier Kisko Products.

He says thieves broke into the yard with a truck cab. They hooked up the trailers to the cab and drove off with the freezies.

Josephs says the theft leaves his company without a bulk of supply for the upcoming freezie season.
