Leader staff

Crooks are cruising in the area in a stolen vehicle, Slave Lake RCMP Staff Sgt. Don Racette told The Leader this afternoon (Monday, Jan. 10), and they are likely looking for other vehicles to steal.

“Lock up your vehicles,” he says.

Racette says “two guys” in a stolen Silverado pickup were last spotted in Smith, “scoping the town out.” Police are looking for the light-blue-ish 2010 Silverado pickup, which was stolen earlier in High Prairie. But until they find it, Racette says he wants people to be aware and take steps to make their vehicles less vulnerable.

The stolen truck’s license plate is CHS 8102.
