The in­di­vid­ual who found a stolen util­ity trailer and its pre­cious cargo will be re­ceiv­ing a $10,000 re­ward, for his part in its re­cov­ery.

“There is no rea­son to be­lieve he is com­plicit,” said John Triv­ett, of the man who re­ported find­ing the car and trailer in deep woods within Nine Mile River.

Triv­ett’s son Matthew owns the 2001 BMW racer and trailer that were re­cently stolen from the park­ing lot of Van­tage Mo­tors in Lower Truro. The car is val­ued at ap­prox­i­mately $100,000 and Triv­ett had re­ferred to it as a trailer with the “Mona Lisa” in­side.

“We were ec­static to have back,” Triv­ett said.

His son, who is a video­caster with the dig­i­tal game Counter Strike, Global Of­fen­sive, is cur­rently work­ing in Poland. it

He had parked the trailer at Van­tage Mo­tors, whose owner is a fam­ily friend, af­ter rac­ing it at Sco­tia Speed World in Shube­nacadie rather than tow­ing it back to Saint John.

Triv­ett be­lieves who ever stole the trailer did so with­out know­ing the valu­able car was in­side.
