Stolen Vernon truck found in Sicamous

Someone stole a cab-over tractor unit shortly before 6 a.m. Monday from Rocky Mountain Transport

A commercial transport truck stolen in Vernon has been found outside a Shuswap pub.

Someone stole a 2004 Freightliner cab-over tractor unit shortly before 6 a.m. Monday from the Rocky Mountain Transport grounds on 41st Avenue.

The company received an anonymous call Monday evening, saying the vehicle was outside of Moose Mulligan’s pub in Sicamous.

“It appears entry was gained into a room where the keys to the units are stored as a small window on an exterior door to the room was broken,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk of Monday’s theft.

“The only thing that appears to have been taken was the set of keys for that particular truck.”

No other property was damaged and the only access gained was to this particular room. No other doors were damaged or touched.

Anybody with any information about the theft is asked to call the Vernon RCMP detachment at 250-545-7171, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
