BURLINGTON, ON January 5, 2012  – During the Christmas holiday period suspects as yet known slipped into the fenced compound of Trans East Trailer at 3091 Appleby Line and removed the tires and rims off two double axle trailers parked in the north west portion of the parking lot.

Stolen were twelve Michelin XZE2 low rolling resistance tires and twelve aluminum outer 10 holes rims. Total loss is valued at $12,000.

Police would like any help they can get on a much bigger heist that took place between November 25th and November 28th, 2011. Thieves broke into a gated compound located at 4495 North Service Road. They then rolled out a 53 foot, white, storage trailer and its contents.  The stolen automotive parts include 10 engines, 54 engine covers and 12 bumpers. The total loss of the trailer and parts is valued at $143,000.   That will be quite an insurance claim

Police see this as professional due to the expertise required to operate and move the heavy objects.

Anyone with information on this or any other crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477 (TIPS) or through the web at
