Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers continue to investigate a recent theft of a pickup truck that was stolen from a Holmes Line residence located just north of Wingham on December 9, 2016. 

Police believe those responsible for the crime entered into a black, 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 sometime around 2:00 a.m.  Once inside the unlocked pickup those responsible located the ignition key in the center console of the vehicle.  The truck then was taken off the property and driven a short distance away.  Police believe the suspects then loaded up various items from the pickup truck and transferred them into a getaway vehicle. 

Shortly after, at 5:00 a.m. a plow operator came along and located the stolen pickup still smoldering on Glenannon Road.  Ultimately the truck was completely destroyed by fire.  

Some of the property stolen from the pickup truck included:

  • A black, “T/C Impact” break action .50 calibre rifle muzzle loader.

  • A black, “Traditions” E bolt 209, .50 calibre rifle muzzle loader with an attached scope

  • Ammunition

  • A man’s wallet containing various pieces of identification

  • 3 sets of two-way radios

  • 2 sets of binoculars

Investigators would like to speak with anyone that may have information about this crime.  Should you have information please contact the Huron County OPP Crime Unit direct by calling (519) 524-8314 or 1-888-310-1122.
