The vehicle has been seized for forensic examination but evidence that was located in the cab of the vehicle may lead to identifying a possible suspect(s).

The business owner has been updated and the investigation is ongoing.

The 100 Mile House RCMP thanks the witness and the public who shared the media post over social media and likely led to the quick recovery of the vehicle.
