Seeking Public Assistance: Stolen Vehicle Incident

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance to locate a vehicle that was stolen from southeast Calgary on Saturday, June 6, 2015.

At approximately 1:10 p.m., police were called to a business in the 4900 block of 126 Avenue S.E., after a vehicle was stolen with a six-year-old child inside. The vehicle was left running and unlocked while the child’s father briefly entered the business. While he was inside the business, an unknown man entered the vehicle and drove away in an unknown direction with the child still inside.

A short time later, police were called to a truck stop located in the 11500 40 Street S.E., where the child had been dropped off unharmed. Officers quickly reunited the child with his parents.

Despite exhaustive search efforts, the vehicle has not been located.

The vehicle is described as a dark grey 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie edition, with Alberta licence plate BMT 7552. It has a black vinyl tonneau cover, chrome running boards, a grey leather interior and a large scrape on the passenger side of the box which is starting to rust, approximately 1” in width and 36” in length. Photos of a similar truck and running boards are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom. 

The unknown male is described as having darker complexion, 30 to 40 years old, clean shaven and had a multi-coloured tattoo on his upper right arm.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of this truck, or about this incident, is asked to call police at 403-266-1234, or Crime Stoppers anonymously through any of the following methods:
