Guelph man shortchanged in parking lot truck sale

Police say the suspects took off with the truck while he was still counting the money, which was $2,500 short

Guelph police are investigating after a Guelph man was allegedly shortchanged while selling his pickup Monday night.

Police say approximately 7 p.m. the man in his 60s agreed to meet a potential buyer at a business on Woodlawn Road West. Four males arrived in a black Honda SUV to look at the victim’s white 2008 Toyota Tundra.

After a test drive they agreed on a sale price of $5,000. One of the men handed the victim cash while the others were removing the licence plates from the truck. The males quickly drove off with the truck while the victim was still counting the cash, which only amounted to $2,500.
