LOCKHARTVILLE, NS – A utility trailer has been stolen off a jobsite at Glooscap Landing, and its owner is asking for the public’s help in finding it.
The trailer is a white 14-foot Royal enclosed cargo trailer, and was stolen while it was parked at the jobsite, located off the Highway 101 exit 8A, near Ben Jackson Road.
The trailer has a Nova Scotia licence plate, along with an old Alberta plate leftover from when it was purchased.
Brant Barnett, the trailer’s owner and driver, is working at the jobsite with coworkers as part of the Barnett Builders Ltd. construction team to build Glooscap Landing’s new Esso gas station.
He and the other workers left the site Tuesday, Jan. 23 at 4:30 p.m., and found the trailer missing when they returned the next day at 7:30 a.m.
Barnett estimates the cost of replacing the trailer and items inside will be around $30,000.
He says he’s never had something worth so much stolen from a jobsite before.
“Over the years the odd thing might get taken – a tool or some supplies – but nothing to this extent,” he said.
Barnett is offering a $500 reward to anyone who knows the trailer’s current location, or who took it.
