Trailer of Frozen Chicken Stolen in Western New Brunswick
New Brunswick Police in Madawaska and Victoria Counties are looking for a stolen transport trailer packed with frozen chicken.
The West District RCMP is investigating the theft of two vehicles from locations in Clair and Saint-François-de-Madawaska which occurred during sometime overnight Saturday into early Sunday.
Police say the first vehicle, a white Freightliner transport truck, model FLD 120, with the name "Nelson Soucy" printed on the doors was stolen from the Nelson Soucy Transport site on Long Boulevard in Clair.
It is believed that this truck was then used to steal a refrigerated trailer from Nadeau Poultry on Commerciale Street in Saint-François-de-Madawaska. The trailer is a 2003 white Hyundai trailer, with "Nadeau Poultry" printed on the sides, and license plate TIE 964 NB. The trailer contained a full load of frozen processed chicken valued at $85,000.
Following the theft of the trailer, the truck is believed to have headed east on Route 120. The transport truck was recovered by police in Quebec near the community of Saint-Mathieu-de-Beloeil, outside of Montreal, without the trailer.
Any person with information on these stolen vehicles, is asked to call the Grand Falls RCMP at 506-473-3137. Information can also be provided anonymously through the NB Crime Stoppers website, by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or by texting TIP212 + your message to 'CRIMES' (274637).
