Brooks RCMP hunting meat thief

by Today's Trucking

BROOKS, Alta. – The Brooks RCMP is looking for a trucker it says recently picked up a load of beef from the JBS meat packing plant and failed to deliver the load.

The truck took the load Aug. 30, under the name Transport Pascal Charland out of Chateauguay, Que., which the RCMP alleges was operating with fraudulent documents and a fake name. The load, still unaccounted for, was valued at $230,000.

The truck is described as burgundy in color, with a large bunk, and was pulling a white refrigerated trailer. It’s believed the same truck and driver also stole a load of seven hot tubs. The suspect is described as: Caucasian, short brown hair (slightly balding), tall with heavy build, and wearing blue jeans, a black t-shirt and yellow fluorescent vest.

  • Who loads a trailer with$230,000.00 worth of anything, without verifying that the company picking it up is legitimate?

  • Folks, this seems very odd to say the least, there had to be a P/U #, PO# truck and trailer verification, drivers name, company name, company/broker you are picking up for, customs paperwork or meat certificate.

    With todays Covid procedures who just walks in to a meat packing plant loads and leaves never to be heard from again, is the guard or shipper a close friend?

    Regardless this just adds to rising insurance issues some face in todays trucking industry.

  • I myself found a stolen truck and trailer in Brandon Manitoba reported it to the company was promised a $2000 reward and never did receive anything now the company people won’t even acknowledge me so why look for this product we’re not rewarded but I will keep my eyes open on the road for it I always do thank you
