RCMP searching for person responsible for setting truck on fire
On Feb 12, 2012, a report of a burnt abandoned pickup was received by the police. The truck was found by Hidden Valley Rd near the gravel pit. The police attended the scene and determined that a 2007, D3500, Dodge, dually pickup had been totally destroyed by the arson.
The owner of the truck was out of the country on a cruise at the time. Upon his return from vacation the owner stated he had left the vehicle at South City Auto for repairs on February 8th, with the keys in drop box. He left for vacation on February 9th. Employees at the repair shop reported they had never seen the vehicle at all. This indicates there are two crime locations, the first where the vehicle was stolen from and the second where it was burnt. The replacement value of the destroyed Dodge pickup is estimated at $28,000.
