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.
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 http://www.crimestoppersnebc.ca.
