MONCTON, N.B. — An observant truck driver is being credited for providing information that resulted in the arrest of a cargo thief and the recovery of $150,000 worth of stolen cheese.

The Moncton Times & Transcript reported a refrigerated trailer full of cheese was stolen from a lot in Moncton last weekend. A couple days later, a professional driver travelling through Quebec noticed the trailer being pulled by a tractor that “didn’t belong,” according to the report.

The truck driver reported the curious combination and police investigated, arresting a 43-year-old man and charging him with possession of stolen property while recovering the trailer and the load. Brazen cargo thieves have been targeting Atlantic Canada this summer, stealing a number of loads. The Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association has been posting details of stolen loads on its Web site at www.apta.ca.
