Drumheller man chasing after his stolen truck threatened with gun

Truck was stolen about 2 a.m. last Saturday

On Dec. 21, 2019 at 2:00 a.m., a truck was stolen from a residence in Drumheller. The victim heard it being driven away and followed it in another vehicle.

A Drumheller resident who heard their truck being stolen and followed it got into a scary situation.

The truck was stolen about 2 a.m. last Saturday.

The victim located the truck with a suspect still inside and confronted him. A second stolen vehicle (silver Volkswagen Jetta) pulled up alongside the vehicles with two more males inside. It is alleged that one of the males pulled out what was believed to be a handgun and pointed it at the victim before all three males fled in the Jetta. No one was injured.

The silver Jetta had previously been reported stolen from Red Deer and has yet to be recovered.

Drumheller RCMP are asking anyone who has information regarding this incident to contact them at 403-823-7590. If you spot this vehicle, please call police and do not make contact with the any occupants as they are considered armed and dangerous.
