OPP Looking For Assistance From The Public After Ultralight Plane Stolen In Selwyn Township

PETERBOROUGH-Peterborough County OPP is asking for the public’s assistance in providing information related to a theft of a trailer and the plane that was being transported on it.

OPP officers received a call from the owner of the trailer and plane advising it had been stolen sometime between August 6, 2023, at 6:00pm and August 8, 2023, at 6:00pm. The owner, a resident of Toronto was visiting his family home in Selwyn Township and while there, parked the trailer with the dismantled plane at a general parking area located off Kawartha Park Road. Police say the plane was chained to the trailer which in turn was locked as well as chained to a tree.

On August 8, 2023, the trailer and plane were noted as missing and the tree that the trailer had been chained to had been knocked over.

The trailer is described as a 2020 homemade trailer, pale yellow in colour with some rust. An Ontario licence plate of T7667K was affixed to the rear of it. The approximate value of the trailer is $1,500.

The plane is described as a 2000 Nordic 2 Ultralight. The aircraft is white with black wings and has an approximate value of $20,000.

Investigators are actively looking for information that may lead to the identification of the suspect(s) involved in this theft. Police urge the public to call in tips on this case, or others, to the Peterborough OPP at 705-742-0401, the non-emergency line (888) 310-1122 or to Crime Stoppers.

With the passing of federal Bill C-18 you will no longer be able to access local news on Facebook or through a Google search once the bill is enacted. That means you won’t be able to find Kawartha 411 News on Facebook or through a Google search. This will devastate local news across the country including here in Kawartha Lakes. Contact your local member of parliament to let them know that local news matters to you and you want them to work with Google and Meta to come to an agreement.
