Two men are wanted by police after they stole a vehicle and took it for a rather brief joy ride.
Fort Saskatchewan RCMP say two men pulled into the Heartland Ford lot in a Ford F-350 truck on Sunday (August 6) and broke into the key drop-off box by the service centre.
A customer noticed the damaged box and notified staff, who discovered some client keys were missing.
"They took keys to a Ford Escape and drove away with that," said Fort Saskatchewan RCMP Constable Janice Shoepp. "Because a license plate was obtained, [police found] the vehicle they drove onto the lot with had been reported stolen out of Westlock."
It was a rather short search before police found the stolen Escape. It was parked across the street behind one of the buildings.
A still image from video surveillance shows one of the suspects (above).
If anyone has information that could help RCMP in their investigation, contact the Fort Saskatchewan detachment at (780) 997-7900.
