Shoplifter drives to Walmart in a tractor cab – police at first unaware of his mode of transportation

Milton officers investigating tractor thefts in Halton continued their investigation into the stolen truck a couple days after its recovery and learned a suspect had driven the stolen truck to the Walmart parking lot in Burlington and entered the store.

The suspect was arrested that day and charged with shoplifting offences. What police didn’t know at the time was that his trip to the Walmart Store was by the truck tractor.

On May 6, 2015, the accused was located by Halton Regional Police investigators in Milton and charged with the theft of the truck.

The police don’t say how long the accused was driving the truck.
