Dec. 27 is a date that Richard Miller will never forget. The Drumheller man stopped by Mac's for a quick snack around 10:30 p.m. and when he came back out, he saw someone stealing his truck.
"I turned the remote start on as I was walking into the convenience store to grab some stuff and, I come out and someone's jumping over my centre console and takes my truck."
Miller quickly posted a photo of his truck to Facebook along with the promise of a reward, hoping that someone would have some information. He spent a sleepless night driving around Drumheller with his father, looking for the stolen truck.
Luckily, Facebook sleuths were on the case.
"A good group of people on Facebook [shared] it and then a good buddy of mine, Chase, actually told me that he saw it at the Morrin rink and called me this morning.
Miller thanks the community for their support and says he won't be using his remote starter to keep his truck warm while in the store anymore. Although the truck is returned and undamaged, Miller says the thief stole everything but his child's car seat.
"There's no damage on the truck but they did steal $700 of stuff out of my truck, like my work stuff, GPS, computer diagnostics, etc."
