Two central Alberta men face theft-related charges after an ATV was stolen from a rural property in the Innisfail area last week.
Innisfail RCMP said on March 4 police were called to the property where two suspects took an ATV and were attempting to steal fuel. Local property owners had confronted the men, and the suspects fled on the ATV.
RCMP members contained the area and requested assistance from the RCMP Police Dog Service.
Both suspects were located by police and arrested without incident.
A 40-year-old man, of Red Deer, was charged with theft of a motor vehicle, break and enter, mischief over $5,000, and three provincial driving infractions.
He will remain in custody pending a bail hearing on March, 11.

He was released from custody on $300 cash bail with conditions. His next court appearance is set for March 28.
RCMP wanted to thank the citizens who witnessed the crime and assisted police in locating the suspects.
