MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Police are warning the public after a transport trailer containing a large quantity of dangerous chemicals was stolen in Mississauga, Ont., west of Toronto, early Friday.
Investigators say the trailer contained sulphuric acid, sodium hydroxide, and potassium hydroxide, and poses a potential hazard to public safety.
Peel police say the chemicals are all classed as dangerous goods and are corrosive in nature, but are stable when on their own.
However, investigators say the chemicals can become dangerous when used improperly and may pose a threat to anyone who comes into contact with them.
The white, 53-foot trailer bears Nova Scotia licence plate PT57976, and has the words Clarke Road Transportation printed in red letters along both sides.
