A truck was stolen from a residence in Drumheller.

On Dec. 21, 2019 at 2 a.m., the victim heard it being driven away and followed it in another vehicle. 

The victim located the truck with a suspect still inside and confronted him.

A second stolen vehicle (silver Volkswagen Jetta) pulled up alongside the vehicles with two more males inside.

It is alleged that one of the males pulled out what was believed to be a handgun and pointed it at the victim before all three males fled in the Jetta. No one was injured.

The silver Volkswagen Jetta with Alberta plate RKM593 had previously been reported stolen from Red Deer and has yet to be recovered.
