Beiseker RCMP investigate theft of vehicle from rural residence

RCMP Alberta - Last night at approximately 11:30 p.m., Beiseker RCMP responded to a report of a vehicle theft from a rural residence. The vehicle that was stolen had the keys in the ignition with the doors unlocked. One of the homeowners pursued their stolen vehicle in their own SUV while the other homeowner called police.

The homeowner’s vehicle sustained minor damage which extended along the passenger side of the vehicle. The homeowner was not injured during the incident. 

The stolen vehicle and second associated vehicle continued north onto Highway 9. The stolen truck was later recovered abandoned on Range Road 264 in between Township Road 270 and 271 in the early morning hours and is being examined by RCMP Forensic Identification Services.
