An investigation is underway after Guelph Police seized a van with stolen plates in the city’s south end.

A police cruiser’s automated licence plate reader pinged on a stolen licence plate on a Chevrolet cube van in the Clair Road East and Gordon Street area around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The plates had been registered to a Ram pickup that had been stolen from south Guelph in late June. The truck was found without plates a few days later in Hagersville.

Investigators said the van had been used to steal gasoline on July 1.

The van has been seized as part of the ongoing investigation. Top Stories
