On Tuesday at around 7:30 a.m., RCMP said they were called to investigate an incident involving a burgundy Ford F350 truck that had crashed into a bay door at a Fountain Tire store.

Police said a GMC truck with “Fountain Tire” logos had also been stolen from the site.

Later that day, police said they tracked-down the Ford F350 truck to a farm near Drumheller.
