Early in the morning on May 28, police responded to reports of break-ins or attempted break-ins at five businesses.

A short time later, police responded to a report of a crash on Route 490 in Irishtown, N.B.

Officers found that a three-tonne cube van had struck a horse that had escaped its enclosure. By the time RCMP officers arrived, the occupants of the cube van had left the scene and the horse died as a result of injuries sustained during the crash.

A search of the cube van led to the discovery of items that had been reported stolen in the earlier break-ins, with the cube van found to also be stolen.

A search warrant was also executed at a storage locker in Moncton, where additional stolen property was recovered.
