(HURON EAST, ON) - Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers, including members from the Huron OPP Crime Unit and the Mount Forest Forensic Identification Services Unit (FIS) continue to investigate a break, enter and theft of firearms that occurred northwest of Seaforth last week.

Later that same night, police recovered the stolen pickup truck nearby on Division Line.
