The New Brunswick RCMP is investigating the theft of two vehicles and thousands of dollars’ worth of chicken.
Police say a white Freightliner transport truck was stolen from the Nelson Soucy transport site on Long Boulevard in Clair, N.B. sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning.

The trailer contained a full load of frozen processed chicken valued at $85,000.
Police believe the truck and trailer headed east on Route 120. The transport truck was later recovered by police near the Quebec community of Saint-Mathieu-de-Beloeil, outside Montreal, without the trailer.
The transport truck was white, model FLD 120, with the name “Nelson Soucy” printed on the doors.
The trailer is a 2003 white Hyundai with “Nadeau Poultry” on the side and licence plate TIE 964 NB.
