BRAMPTON, Ont. — Peel Regional Police Service’s newly formed Regional Traffic Enforcement Unit is asking for the public’s help in locating two tractor-trailer tires that came dislodged from a trailer.

Investigators believe that a set of dual tires from a trailer’s right side may be somewhere along eastbound Highway 401 between Windsor, Ont. and Toronto, Ont.

The tires separated from their trailer sometime between 4:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on Jan. 15.

The two tires, a brake drum and other brake components came off from the axle.

In a press release, police credited truckers who were running the same route for spotting the missing wheels as they moved along side the Montreal-bound rig. They say the driver claimed that he was not aware that the tires had separated from the vehicle.

Anyone with information about the tires should contact Constables Ed Spence or Al Trudell of the Peel Regional Police Regional Traffic Enforcement Unit, at 905- 453-3311 ext. 7032.
