Last Thursday, Wellington OPP responded to reports of a theft at the Elliot Coach Lines Detachment in Fergus.
It is believed that sometime overnight unknown suspects made their way into the parking lot and removed the batteries from seven of the coach lines’ buses. Each bus had three batteries taken, each of which are valued at about $80.
The buses also had clean power cables removed from them.
Police estimate a total of $3,000 worth of equipment is in need of replacement before these buses can be operational once again.
Most of these batteries are “International” Brand. Anyone with information is asked to contact the OPP.
