The week kicked off with two stolen vehicles being located. Both cases involved vehicles crossing the B.C / Alberta border.
On November 8th, police said they received a call regarding suspicious vehicle abandoned on Highway 3 which turned out to be a recovered stolen vehicle out of Calgary.
“Another call was received from a Creston business advising that a vehicle was stolen from them around the same time,” Staff Sgt. Ryan Currie added in this week’s report. “This vehicle was later located damaged in High River, Alberta.”
High River lies just south of Calgary.
