Investigators Seek Public’s Assistance in Industrial Battery Thefts

Investigators from the 11 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau are seeking the public’s assistance

with an investigation into a rash of industrial battery thefts from street-side utility cabinets.

Police have received several reports of industrial battery thefts throughout the Region of Peel. These

thefts are occurring to the street-side utility cabinets in residential neighborhoods where the industrial

batteries are being removed from the cabinets.

Peel Regional Police are asking for the public’s assistance in reporting any suspicious activity in the

vicinity of these cabinets which are typically large green metal boxes located on the grassy

boulevards or front lawns in residential neighborhoods.

Police are reminding the public to report any suspicious activity pertaining to the street-side utility

cabinets to police immediately. If an open cabinet is located, do not touch it as they may still have

power running through the cabinet and could create an electric shock.
