This evening at 6:10 PM a vehicle was stolen from the post office in Hanna. The Hanna RCMP located the vehicle at 6:40 PM stuck near Fox Lake (Twp Rd 312 RR 145). A police service dog and handler attended the scene along with 2 members from the K Div Emergency Response Team. As a result of the police service dog assistance a suspect was located and arrested.

Vehicle theft can be a crime of opportunity and the RCMP are reminding people that vehicles left running, even for short periods of time, are easy targets for thieves.
