Two Duncan men arrested after police locate stolen truck
Two Duncan men are in police custody after Mounties located a stolen truck on Hillcrest Road.
North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP located the stolen Toyota Tundra at approximately 5 a.m. on Valentine's Day.
"At the time the police located the vehicle there were occupants in it that ran into the bush," detachment spokesman Cpl. Kevin Day said in an email to media.
"The police set up containment in the area, and called in Police Dog Services. After a lengthy search that lasted until approximately 10 a.m., two male suspects were located and arrested."
Police are investigating the possibility of a third suspect having been in the vehicle at the time it was located.
The two suspects currently in police custody are both from Duncan.
"One is a young offender, and the other an adult," Day said. "They are being held for court Wednesday morning on charges of possession of stolen property."
