Trail police on the lookout for stolen truck

Trail RCMP ask the public to keep an eye out for the white Silverado, stolen Sunday

Police are on the lookout for a truck stolen from a Teck Trail contractor.

“The Trail and Greater District RCMP Detachment is asking for public assistance in locating a white Chevrolet Silverado regular cab pickup truck,” Sgt. Mike Wicentowich reported Dec. 24.

The vehicle bears British Columbia licence plate number HD4211. The word “IMPACT” is written in blue lettering on the side.

The truck was stolen on Sunday (Dec. 23) at 6:00 pm from the contractor parking lot at Teck Trail Operations.

Wicentowich says the vehicle was left unlocked with the keys inside it.

“The police are looking for a single male occupant and the truck was believed to be headed toward Castlegar,” he said.

“The police continue to ask the public to refrain from leaving their keys inside vehicles, lock their vehicles and remove all valuables from their vehicles.”

The detachment has made progress as of late through certain arrests, but Wicentowich says officers still need assistance in reducing crimes of opportunity like this.

In other words, lock up your vehicles.

“The citizens of the Trail and Greater District are an amazing community of people,” he said. “And regularly work together on such issues to continue to make this area the safest it can be.”

Sightings of the stolen truck should be reported to the Trail and Greater District RCMP Detachment at (250) 364-2566.

Or, any tips of the truck’s whereabouts can be reported anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Wicentowich added, “Please do not attempt to stop the truck or apprehend any suspects.”
