The semi-trailer truck was found in the 8200-block of River Road in Delta, near an industrial park. It had been emptied of its contents. The truck was stolen Monday around 9 a.m. from the 300-block of Southeast Marine Drive in Vancouver.
“Semi-trailers do go missing on a regular basis, but butter’s not a typical product that’s stolen,” said Const. Paul Eisenzimmer of the Delta Police Department. “The average corner store that might be interested in buying stolen cigarettes wouldn’t likely be interested in butter. Getting rid of $170,000 worth of butter would be pretty hard.”
