Truck left running stolen from Springbrook

Blackfalds RCMP release photos of suspect

A pickup truck was reported stolen from Airport Drive in Springbrook on Tuesday.

Blackfalds RCMP said the truck, a grey 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 with the Alberta licence plate USS949, was taken from outside the complainant’s place of work place.

At the time the truck was left running with the keys in the ignition.

The incident captured on security cameras showed a black Hyundai Elantra arrive. A female exited the car and jumped into the running Dodge Ram and sped away. The driver of the Hyundai fled from the scene during the theft.

The female suspect was in her late 20s with a slim build and black shoulder-length hair.

Police have released the image of the suspect and the suspect vehicle. Police are requesting anyone recognizing the suspect to contact the RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

Police said crime prevention is a shared responsibility and to help prevent crime the public is reminded to:

  • Lock up houses, sheds, vehicles and any other property that is easily accessible.
  • Never leave running vehicles unlocked. Nearly half of the vehicle thefts in Alberta over the past year have had the keys left inside.
  • Take photos and record serial numbers of property.
  • Notify police immediately of suspected suspicious activity.

Anyone with information about the investigation is asked to contact Blackfalds RCMP at 403-885-3300. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at If information leads to an arrest there could be a cash reward up to $2,000.
