$50,000 in milk stolen from transport truck in Mississauga

Everyday millions of dollars in goods are transported on Ontario highways. Cargo trucks can be an easy target for theft and so there’s a growing demand for GPS tracking devices that protect drivers and their valuable freight.

On two separate occasions this week, cargo trucks containing milk and fruit have been robbed in the GTA and the incidents are raising questions as to how often these crimes occur.

Peel Police say $50,000 worth of milk was stolen from the back of a large transport truck in Mississauga on Wednesday, a little before 6 a.m. Days earlier, on Sunday, Hamilton Police asked for the public’s help to locate $100,000 worth of blueberries and other fruit, after suspects gained access to a commercial truck that was eventually driven into Toronto.
