Drumheller RCMP received a report at 7:30 a.m. on January 15 that a burgundy Ford F350 truck smashed into a bay door at Fountain Tire and a logoed ‘Fountain Tire’ GMC truck was stolen.
Later in the evening, the burgundy Ford F350 was involved in rural fuel thefts which culminated in a male being apprehended at a farm and the truck seized.
The male was arrested and taken to hospital. A police investigation is ongoing. The suspect cannot be named pending the swearing of information.
The stolen Fountain Tire truck has since been linked to a rash of offences in the Three Hills to Bashaw area and police are looking for the public’s assistance in locating the truck and second suspect.
