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.
