Caledon OPP investigate 

theft of snowmobile trailer

On Saturday, November 16, 2019, at about 11:10 a.m., officers from the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Caledon Detachment responded to a reported theft in the area of Mississauga Road and Mayfield Road in the Town of Caledon.

The complainant advised that a snowmobile trailer was stolen sometime between 8:30 p.m. on Friday, November 15th and 10:15 a.m., on Saturday, November 16th, 2019.

The complainant stated that the trailer was loaded with the following:

• Skidoo snowmobile;

• Five travel bags for snowmobile storage;

• Four spare drive belts;

• Two spare aluminum tires;

• One tool kit;

• One scissor jack.

Caledon OPP is appealing to the public for witnesses in this theft. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Caledon OPP detachment at (905) 584-2241 or toll-free at 1-888-310-1122.

You can also provide information anonymously by contacting Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.peelcrimestoppers.ca. When you contact Crime Stoppers you stay anonymous, you never have to testify, and you could receive a cash reward of up to $2,000 upon an arrest.

Here are some safety tips to keep your outdoor recreation equipment safe:

• Purchase a wheel lock. A wheel lock is a visible deterrent and does not allow the trailer to be moved.

• Block the doors. Park your trailer so that the rear doors butt up against a wall or some other permanent structure. Combining that with a wheel lock will make it much tougher for a thief.

• Paint the top and sides of your trailer with large identifying information. This way if it is stolen it can be easily identified.

• Lock it down. Hitch, tongue and coupler locks are available to secure your trailer. Use a heavy chain and anchor cemented in place to secure your to a driveway. Trailer doors should always be secured with heavy duty locks.

Invest in security devices like alarms and tracking devices to alert you when an attempt is being made to steal your trailer.
