Police searching for truck thief in Mountview

Red Deer RCMP are currently on scene throughout the Mountview neighbourhood searching for a suspect who abandoned a stolen truck and fled police on foot.

RCMP located the truck at around 1:30 p.m. and the suspect abandoned it and fled shortly afterward.

Police are searching the area between 40A Avenue and 43 Avenue, and 39 Street and 44 Street and are searching for a Caucasian man with a Mohawk hairstyle.
