Thieves have stolen butter worth more than $200,000 in Canada.

The provincial police in Quinte West are investigating the Christmas day theft of more than $200,000 worth of butter from a trucking yard.

Police were called to a trucking facility on Glen Miller Road in Trenton on the morning of December 26.

Investigation determined that at about 11:00pm on December 25, four suspects broke into the facility after being dropped nearby by someone driving a black sport utility vehicle.

The four stole two transport trucks and hooked up two trailers which were each loaded with approximately 20,000 kilograms of butter, with a combined retail value of about $200,000.

The trucks and trailers were tracked down in the Toronto area on December 27. But the butter was gone.
