The OPP are investigating a theft in Wallace.
At around 3:30am Wednesday morning, officers were called to a home on Line 88 west of Road 146.
A noise outside woke the man up, and he saw a light coloured Ford Econoline van without rear side windows parked across the road in front of his house.
He turned on the outside lights and the van started to drive away as another man started running from the property. He caught up to it, jumped in, and the van took off southbound on Road 146.
Police found the locked shed had been forced open, and a yellow and black 4000 Watt Champion Model 46551 generator was missing along with a full red plastic 5 gallon gas can.
A search of the area for the van was unsuccessful.
The Perth County OPP requesting anyone who has seen a van matching this description, or who has information about this theft to contact them at 1-888-310-1122.
