Bold thieves make off with lumber-loaded trailers

Chilliwack RCMP are looking for lumber thieves who pulled off a brazen heist.

Between 5 p.m. Monday and 8 a.m. Tuesday, two commercial B-Train trailers were stolen from the Chevron in the 44000 block of Yale Road. Both were loaded with 1” x 6”x 10' lengths of wood, wrapped with white plastic wrap and emblazoned with 'GORMAN' in green lettering.

They are black 2006 Magnum flat decks, one bearing BC license plate 25328D and the other BC plate 55325B.

The combined value of the trailers and lumber is estimated to be in the tens of thousands of dollars.

Anyone with info is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers (anonymously) at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
