Stolen Toyota found

It was found with the dash ripped apart on Tuesday, abandoned near Thornhill.

The black Toyota pickup that was stolen from the Thornhill Pub parking lot was found with damages on Tuesday night.

It was taken from the Thornhill Pub overnight on Monday, Aug. 20, after owner Sonny Walterhouse left the truck there and got a ride home.

Walterhouse said a youth contacted the family around 9:45 p.m. on Tuesday, after seeing the story about the missing truck online.

“A young kid found it on the pipeline in the woods,” said Walterhouse in a message, referring to a pipeline in Thornhill near Paquette Ave.

“I went there and brought it home, and there was minimal damage to the body,” he added.

The dash was ripped apart and the stereo and amp stolen, said Walterhouse, but the truck is still driveable.

Walterhouse said he’s happy to have it back.

“I only had it for two weeks, so it’s nice to have it back,” he said.
