Mounties Arrest Truck Thief
Police cruiser repeatedly rammed after wild chase in farm field
A pickup truck sits at Banford Rd and Prairie Central after being stolen by a suspect who lead police on a wild chase through farm fields Saturday.
1997 black F350 was being worked on in the driveway of a home in the 9400-block of Coote St. and had both door panels off when it was allegedly stolen at gunpoint about 5:30 p.m. Saturday.
The suspect, described as Caucasian, 25-30 years-old with dyed orange hair,
shaved on one side, reportedly had a sawed-off shotgun at the time the truck
Speeds reached 160km/hr and officers kept their distance when the truck was
seen veering into oncoming traffic.
The pickup was built like a tank with a lift kit and a push bar on the
front, but by the end of the frantic ride it was a twisted wreck.
