OPP say their search for a stolen transport truck in Howick Township has now turned into an arson investigation.
Police say they were told by a witness that the white 1990 Peterbilt three-axle transport was seen burning at the Howick landfill station on Harriston Road Thursday.
Investigators report that both sets of rear tires had been removed from the truck, before the fire was set.
OPP say the $38,000 rig was taken from a Fordwich Line property last Sunday.
The vehicle's doors had been left unlocked and the key was in the ignition.
