Police investigating after forklift abandoned on Wellington Street in Lindsay

KAWARTHA LAKES-City of Kawartha Lakes Police are investigating a rather unusual incident.

It’s not uncommon for officers to receive the report of an abandoned bicycle, or the occasional found purse or wallet. But on January 17, 2019 a concerned member of the public contacted the police service to report that a “forklift” was left abandoned in the middle of Wellington Street in Lindsay.

Police say the “forklift” turned out to be a device commonly referred to as a “pallet jack” or a “pump jack” which is often used to move pallets around a warehouse.

The owner of the forklift is not known and it is now stored in the property bureau of the police service. If you believe this piece of found property may belong to you, please contact the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service at 705-324-5252.
