“What he took was a trailer with the Mona Lisa inside,” said John Trivett, of Saint John, N.B.
There was a 2001 BMW GT3 race car was inside the stolen trailer; Trivett’s son Matthew races the car at Atlantic Motorsport Park and it is worth approximately $100,000.
The trailer, which is valued at about $7,500, was stolen from the parking lot of Vantage Motors between 8:30 and 8:45 p.m. Friday, based on a security video that shows it being towed away by what appears to be a black van.
“It was just a petty theft, we believe,” Trivett said, of the trailer, which is a 24-foot white, generic model.
The 24-ft. white generic model trailer has a New Brunswick licence plate, TRC 647.
“We have some leads. We’re working on it,” Trivett said.
Anyone who has information about the theft is asked to contact the Bible Hill RCMP detachment at 902 893-6820 or Trivett at (506) 663- 5011.
