Police say they are looking to recover some high-end industrial items that were allegedly stolen from a Glanbrook business in September and later sold on the property.

The force’s break and enter, auto theft and robbery (BEAR) branch says the equipment was likely sold in a “garage sale environment” during the week of Sept. 23 to 30.

Investigators say suspects broke into a commercial business at 4351 Highway 6 during the last week of September and removed equipment used for painting and chroming metals.

Hamilton police allege equipment used for painting and chroming metals was stolen and illegally sold off in a "garage sale environment" at a red barn in Glanbrook.

Detectives allege the items were then sold to unsuspecting buyers on the same property without the owner’s knowledge.

“The frequency of when the owners visited the property was irregular so I believe they are not running a traditional Monday to Friday 9-5 operation,” Const. Jerome Stewart told Global News, “Therefore there were times when they were not around.”
