Shortly after the initial report, a witness observed the truck driving erratically while northbound on Highway 22 and called police. The witness followed the truck to a location in Genelle.

The officer also detained and identified the 31-year-old man suspected to be driving the stolen truck who was near the area of recovery.

The truck towed to the Trail Detachment. Nelson RCMP Forensic Identification Section has conducted an examination of the truck.

A vehicle stolen from Nelson, BC, was recovered in Trail over the weekend in a third incident within the last week. Please lock your vehicle and do not store your keys inside, as the Trail and Greater District area is likely to experience a further rash of car thefts. Modern vehicles are nearly impossible to steal without having a set of keys and securing your keys is your best defense against being a victim of crime. says Sgt. Wicentowich
