Six black Axcess box shipping containers were stolen from an Aldergrove residence on Wednesday, Feb 10.
Owner Robert Smith said the boxes disappeared between the hours of 9:45 p.m. and 1 a.m. from his property at 264th and 36th Ave.
“Three pick up trucks were spotted on the scene; a five Tonne truck winched the shipping containers one at a time,” Smith explained in a Facebook post.
Smith said he hired a helicopter to look for the containers the next morning but was too late.
“They were either moved further away or stuffed in a barn,” he said. “If anyone saw these containers on someones property or saw them being moved any help would be appreciated.”
The contents were quite valuable – filled with commercial-grade LED Christmas lights.
Smith said he would offer a cash reward for any help leading to their return.
The containers were 20 feet long and 9.6 feet tall and solid black colour.
People can contact Smith through Facebook.
