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.

Anyone with information related to these events are encouraged to contact the Smithers RCMP at 1-250-847-3233. Alternatively, they may also contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477) anywhere in B.C. 24/7.
