Thieves used a stolen truck and trailer to steal cigarettes from a store in Wentworth.
Just before 3 a.m. on December 28, thieves broke in to a store in Wentworth and stole an undetermined amount of cigarettes. The suspects were observed leaving in two vehicles, one of which was a Chev truck hauling a black, enclosed dual axel trailer with a company name on side of it. The second vehicle was described as a cross over SUV or a car. The suspect vehicles departed travelling west on Highway 4.
A short time later, the suspect vehicle hauling the trailer was observed in the Oxford area. The investigation has determined that the truck and trailer were stolen in two separate incidents in the Halifax area that same night.
