Truck thief injures Calgary man
CALGARY — A Calgary man who was dragged about 100 metres while trying to prevent a thief from stealing his pickup truck is in hospital recovering from serious injuries.
Police say the man awoke around midnight to the sound of someone trying to make off with the vehicle from their northwest-area home.
He confronted the thief in an alley and was initially pinned against a fence before he was dragged.
The pickup was found abandoned a few blocks away and police say they’re investigating a possible link between it and another stolen truck discovered nearby.
