‘Getting it back would mean the world to me’

Public asked to keep on the look out for truck stolen Saturday morning

A Williams Lake resident is asking the public to help find his truck, stolen Saturday morning at about 8 a.m.

The 20-year-old said they saw the truck parked in the driveway in the 1000 block of Pigeon Avenue at 7:45 a.m., and then heard the sound of the diesel engine start up and the truck drive off a short time later.

It’s not his first vehicle, but it is his nicest and most expensive so far, he said, which he saved up for. The truck also had all his tools for work and personal protective equipment he needs for his job as well.

“Getting it back would mean the world to me,” he said.

This is the second vehicle stolen in Williams Lake in as many weeks.
