A stolen Work Authority truck with 800 pairs of work boots inside has been found, but OPP are still looking for who stole it.

The truck went missing from a commercial location in Tecumseh on Tuesday July 24th, 2018 and was recovered in a remote area of Chatham-Kent near Jeanette’s Creek on Wednesday, July 25th, 2018.

OPP say that area video surveillance captured a vehicle of interest in relation to the theft of the truck. Investigators believe the vehicle is an early model tan or brown Buick Rendezvous.

The vehicle appears to be missing the hubcaps on both rear tires and is also believed to have tape around the front passenger side window. A witness observed the Work Authority truck at a rural public boat ramp at the end of Jeanette’s Creek Road, north of Tecumseh Line, in Chatham-Kent County.

The pictured Rendezvous was in the company of the Work Authority truck on Wednesday, July 25th, 2018.
