Big load of beef bound for the U.S. goes missing, Canadian cops say


Police are asking the public for help in locating a large load of steaks headed for the U.S. that disappeared after they were picked up from a meat packing plant in Canada.

Brooks RCMP detailed the massive meat heist that occurred at the JBS meat packing plant in Brooks, Alberta, late last month:

On August 30th, 2020 a transport truck that was subcontracted to haul a full load of beef from the JBS meat packing plant to the United States failed to make its delivery. It was later determined that the transport truck was operating under fraudulent documents and under the fraudulent name of “Transport Pascal Charland” out of Chateauguay, Quebec. The full load of beef was valued at over $230,000 and is unaccounted for to date.

Police describe the suspect truck as maroon/red tractor with a large bunk area pulling a white refrigerated trailer.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, tall with a heavy build, with slightly balding short brown hair. He was wearing blue jeans, a black t-shirt, a yellow flourescent vest, and a surgical mask at the time of the alleged cargo theft.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the missing meat is asked to call Brooks RCMP at 403-794-4400.
