A local user on reddit (/u/ZefAntwoord) posted a plea for help asking if anyone has seen this moving truck that was stolen on July 1st in Scarborough.
The title of the post makes it sound like a truck filled to the brim with cremains was stolen. That’s the only funny part about it. This truck had basically 3 family’s lives inside it. Who steals a moving truck? Also, you would think it would stick out like a sore thumb. I hope this person gets their stuff back, at least, their Mom back. Posting for visibility.
Let’s find this truck! Power of the internet! We can do it!
From Margareta Dovgal onFacebook:
Putting an appeal out into this world – PLEASE SHARE. Has anyone in or around Scarborough or Toronto, or even farther, seen an abandoned or suspiciously parked Budget truck recently? In the early hours of July 1st, my belongings, along with those of two other families, were stolen in a truck by a group of three thieves from 150 McLevin Avenue in Scarborough. The same thieves dumped another empty trailer that they took in Etobicoke North.
The truck is a 26. ft long Hino 338 (see image below) with the Budget logo. The license plate is AD94761.
If you see a truck fitting this description, please call your local police. It has been reported stolen.
It’s not just all of my possessions – that truck carries everything I have left of my parents, who are both gone, including priceless family photos, gifts from my deceased grandmother, and even my mother’s ashes. Someone else has their mother’s ashes on that truck too (imagine that). The mover has told me that another family affected is a single mom with her three kids and almost everything they own has been taken, putting them into dire financial straits.
If not the truck itself, my belongings are mostly packed in UHaul boxes of various sizes, with small red moving stickers on all of them, in the off-chance that someone spots them dumped.
Please keep an eye out and share with anyone who lives in the area.
