The Revelstoke RCMP is warning owners of Ford F250 and F350 trucks to be careful following an attempted theft last night.
RCMP say that unknown people attempted to steal a 2008 Ford F350 from a home in Arrow Heights some time between Wednesday at 11 p.m. and Thursday at 3 a.m.
“The theft was unsuccessful due to the vehicle having an active theft deterrent device installed,” wrote Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky in a news release. “The public is reminded to secure all vehicles and utilize theft deterrent systems when possible.”
2005-2008 year Ford F250 and F350 trucks are high-value targets, warned Grabinsky.
Anyone with knowledge of the attempted theft are asked to contact the Revelstoke RCMP at 250-837-5255 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
