UPDATE: Conservation helps recover vehicle reported stolen

Conservation located the vehicle in the Bulkley River Tuesday.

The Conservation Officer Service put out a photo Wednesday morning on Twitter about what it described as a vehicle reported stolen and found in the Bulkley Valley.

Smithers RCMP said in a release they were alerted Oct. 24 around 5:30 p.m. by a BC Conservation Officer that a vehicle was in the river near the Bulkley Bridge in Smithers.

Police said they attended and established the blue Ford F-150 was stolen, and believed left intentionally in the river. The truck had been reported as stolen earlier that morning from a residence on Twelfth Avenue in Smithers sometime overnight.

The truck was drivable and recovered from the river without incident.
