UPDATE: Red Deer RCMP investigate theft of fifth wheel trailer

Trailer recovered at campground in Pine Lake

A fifth wheel trailer that was stolen from a locked compound in Queens Business Park the evening of June 3rd has been recovered.

A citizen spotted the suspect truck and stolen trailer parked at a campground in Pine Lake and Innisfail RCMP recovered it there. No suspects were at the scene when the stolen property was recovered.

Shortly after 7:30 p.m. on June 3rd, two men in a truck broke into the Allan Dale Industries compound located on Queens Drive, hooked a fifth wheel trailer up to the truck and drove out through the front gate.

The stolen trailer is a Heartland Road Warrior 427RW worth approximately $121,000. One unique identifying feature of the stolen trailer is that it had a washing machine and dryer system installed, with a chrome dryer vent.

The suspect truck is a black Ford F150 with a large dent in the box behind the passenger side of the crew cab. Because the truck is not adequate for pulling a trailer of this size any significant distance, RCMP believe the fifth wheel may have been pulled a short distance and then hooked up to a more appropriate vehicle.

Police are asking any witnesses who may have seen suspicious activity involving a Heartland Road Warrior fifth wheel trailer in that area or around that time to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
