While unusual, a recent robbery in Delta created a huge financial loss.
On Saturday, January 20th thieves stole a trailer that was holding more than 2,500 cases of Coors Light beer. The beer was stolen in Delta on property located on the 600-block of Aldford Avenue; the culprits are still at large.
“Surveillance footage shows a red semi-truck enter the lot, and hook up to the trailer containing the beer at approximately 11:45 January 20,” says Delta Police spokesperson,Cris Leykauf. “Based on the company’s GPS tracking systems, we know the trailer was then driven to the 8000 block of Blundell Road in Richmond, approximately half an hour later.”

Once police discovered the trailer, it was completely empty. In total, they recorded 2,592 missing cases of beer. The value of the missing goods? A staggering $155,000 for the frothy contents.
“This is definitely an unusual theft,” says Leykauf. “We’re asking that anyone who may have seen some noteworthy activity, or perhaps is aware of some odd circumstances around the sale of beer to contact Delta Police at 604-946-4411.”
