Investigation continues into a vehicle theft that ended with a fire outside of Coaldale.

Lethbridge police report officers responded Wednesday to a report that a car left running to warm up on a driveway on Stafford Bay North had been stolen.

When the owner saw it leaving the driveway, police say he ran to stop it. But after a brief struggle, the thief drove it away.

Later in the day, Coaldale RCMP advised they had located the car – on fire in a farmer’s field.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, about 20 to 25 years old, wearing a grey coat with the hood up (fur around the hood) and winter boots with fur on top. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 403-328-4444 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477.
