The Wellington County OPP says that it was called on Feb. 6 just before 6 a.m.
A complainant told police he saw his pickup truck being taken from a parking lot on Nicholas Beaver Road in Puslinch Township. It was reportedly being followed by a black Escalade.
The man and his friend then followed the vehicle in his friend’s car.
