Owner ‘ecstatic’ to have stolen BMW racer back
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.
