Police said the van was taken overnight in a robbery reported Tuesday. Suspects kicked in the side door of a machine shed in the 300 block of County Road 50 and ransacked the building.

The vehicle, an older-model white GMC van, was stolen after being loaded up with equipment, including an army-green Honda 250 cc four-wheeler with no muffler as well as compressor­s and welding equipment.

Police recovered the van in Amherstbur­g, where it was found in a church parking lot in the 9000 block of County Road 41. The stolen items were not recovered.

Police are seeking informatio­n and ask those who can help to call OPP at 519-723-2491 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.
