Cops in Toronto are pleading with the public to help them solve a hefty Christmas Day heist. The Daily Meal reports on the theft of an "extremely large quantity" of veal, as it's worded in a police release. The meat (and the 48-foot refrigerated trailer it was being stored in), which was worth about $30,000, was lifted from a North York commercial address sometime between 3pm Monday and 5am the next day. A police spokeswoman says the trailer was apparently hooked onto a getaway vehicle and driven off the lot, per the Toronto Star. The trailer, which belongs to meat distributor White Valley, has a blue "W" and the company's name on its side, as well as the Ontario plate K5885K. Anyone with information is urged to call 416-808-3100 or use other contact info cited in the release. (More weird crimes stories.)
