Beiseker RCMP and a good Samaritan are getting the credit for catching a truck thief earlier this week.
Airdrie RCMP were called Tuesday night about a stolen Ford one ton from Calgary. It wound up driving into the Beiseker area, where it was disabled by an RCMP spike belt and drove into a creek northwest of Acme. The suspect fled on foot.
The next morning, Mounties were called about a suspicious man covered in mud wandering about the area looking for a ride. A good Samaritan picked him up and drove him to a restaurant in Linden before calling police.
A 41 year old man from Olds was arrested by Beiseker RCMP. He's been remanded in custody until an August 23 court date in Airdrie.
