Stolen truck recovered, then stolen, then recovered again: Guelph police
Police handed truck over to rightful owner, who then watched someone else drive it away again
A truck was stolen twice and recovered twice in Guelph on the weekend, police say.
A GMC Sierra truck was reported stolen on Saturday. Later the same day, it was located on Sunnylea Crescent, near Guelph General Hospital. The rightful owner of the truck went there to pick it up.
Police left the area and once they did, a man came out of a residence, "got into the recently recovered vehicle and drove it away," police said in a release.
The owner of the truck followed the vehicle and it stopped at a residence on Mohawk Drive, about 3 km away in the northern part of the city.
Police were called to the residence on Mohawk Drive and arrested a 43-year-old Guelph man. He has been charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000 and breaching probation. The man was also given a curfew and police say he was arrested again Monday morning at 1:10 a.m. for breaching his conditions.
