Coaldale RCMP have arrested a Calgary man in relation to an unusual break and enter Tuesday night.

Police responded to a report of a break and enter into a Coaldale residence just before 5 p.m.

An array of items were stolen from inside the home, including a rifle, cash, personal property and a red 1976 Chevy Corvette.

A witness saw the man load the Corvette on a U-Haul trailer and watched him drive away.

About an hour later, the man was spotted driving west on Highway 3 at Scenic Drive hauling the Corvette. He was immediately pulled over.

Police confirmed Tuesday it was stolen from the Coaldale home. The rest of the stolen items were also discovered in his car.

The suspect, a 46 year-old male from Calgary, was arrested Wednesday for a number of property offences. He will be further investigated to determine if he is linked to any other property crimes.
