UPDATE: Stolen U-Haul located and returned, one person arrested

Police thanked community for providing information leading to arrest, return of U-Haul

A U-Haul truck that was reported stolen earlier this week has been found, according to Cranbrook RCMP.

Sgt. Katie Forgeron says that the U-Haul has been located and returned, and one person was arrested as a result and released for a future court date.

“Thank you to the community for providing information which led to the arrest of the individual and the return of the U-Haul,” Forgeron said.

The Cranbrook RCMP detachment had asked for help from the public in locating a U-Haul that was reportedly stolen out of Edmonton.

Police suspected that the vehicle was parked along back roads or camped in green spaces around the area.

On May 3 they responded to a “suspicious vehicle” parked in the bush near Fraggle Rock, which is located at the entrance of the Cranbrook Community Forest on Hwy 3/95.

“Officers attended and spoke with two individuals who had been camping for the night,” Forgeron said in a press release. “They advised they would be moving along. Later that afternoon, Edmonton Police Services advised that the U-Haul was stolen from their point.”
