Abbotsford police are investigating the theft of a large metal gate, stolen from a property on Old Yale Road on Monday afternoon.
The gate, which had been installed about a month ago to prevent people accessing the private property behind it and areas beyond it with on and off road vehicles, was stolen from the 41200 block of Old Yale Road.
Police and fire rescue have been called to the area numerous times in the past to investigate large parties and fires, although there have been reports of shots fired and the dumping of refuse as well.
An area resident observed a dark coloured pick-up truck with a white trailer in the vicinity around the time of the theft.
Anyone with information about this incident should call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225 or text 222973 (abbypd) or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
