Stolen Ford F-350 submerged into Charlie Lake…

FORT ST. JOHN, BC: On September 5th, 2018 just before 8 AM, the Fort St. John RCMP received a report of a stolen F-350 which occurred overnight from the area of 101st Ave /92nd Street…

Police say later that same morning the stolen F-350 was located fully submerged in Charlie Lake after being driven nose first into the lake at the Beatton Provincial Park boat launch.

The Fort St. John RCMP has confirmed there were no occupants in the truck at the time it was located. A witness observed the truck being driven into the Park around 10:30 PM on September 4, 2018. The owner of the truck has been notified.

The Fort St. John RCMP is requesting the assistance of the public with providing any useful information in regards to this theft. It is believed the truck, described as a white 2017 Ford F-350, was stolen between 9 PM and 10:30 PM on September 4.

The Fort St. John RCMP also wish to take this opportunity to remind vehicle owners/drivers to:

  • -remove all keys,
  • -remove any valuables such as cell phones, money, ID’s and wallets,
  • -lock their vehicles any time they leave them unattended and especially overnight.

There has been a recent rash of thefts of Ford F-350’s over the summer but thieves are also looking for easy targets that are left unlocked or have visible valuables which are an inviting temptation.
The Fort St. John RCMP is asking anyone with information about the suspect(s) or this incident or any other vehicle thefts to call the Fort St. John RCMP at 250-787-8100 or attend the detachment. If you wish to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or submit a tip online at
