Last night, fire crews, police and EHS were called to a boat launch near Dewolf Park after a vehicle was seen driving into the basin. An RCMP dive team was brought in to check the vehicle for occupants and assist with the recovery of the vehicle.
“The Underwater Recovery Team checked the vehicle and determined it was not occupied. The vehicle, a Chevrolet Tahoe, was then towed out of the basin. It was determined that the vehicle had been stolen from Haltern earlier in the evening.
The owner, who wasn’t aware that his vehicle was stolen, was located and notified of this event. It is believed the vehicle was unoccupied and set in motion towards the basin.
The investigation will continue in an effort to locate the person (s) responsible for stealing the vehicle and sending it in to the water.”
