Truck stolen on Valentine’s Day found in Killam

The truck that was stolen from Stettler’s No Frills parking lot on Feb. 14 was found two days later in a ditch in Killam.

The truck that was stolen from Stettler’s No Frills parking lot on Tuesday, Feb. 14 was found on Thursday afternoon, Feb. 16 in a ditch in Killam.

“It was reported to us and we recovered it in the afternoon, but the incident is still under investigation,” Killam RCMP stated.

However, both car seats are missing, along with groceries according to the owner of the truck, Jasmin Schultz, a County of Stettler resident.

It was a rude shock for Schultz when she came back into the parking lot of No Frills on Tuesday, Feb. 14 after completing her grocery shopping.

“I had already bought most of my groceries and had to get some remaining items, so I pulled into No Frills around 7:30 p.m.,” Schultz recalled. “I fed my two kids some snacks while sitting in the truck and then we headed out to finish our grocery shopping.”

Schultz said at first when she didn’t find her truck, she thought she had forgotten where she had parked.

But given that it was 8 p.m. on Valentine’s Day, the parking lot was not crowded, but only had a few vehicles; it was then it dawned on Schultz that someone might have stolen her truck.

“I called 911 right away,” Schultz said. “And after speaking with the RCMP, we headed back into the store to replace our stolen groceries and Sean from No Frills was gracious enough to not charge us at all!”

What upsets Schultz the most is the fact that her truck a 2006 F350 King Ranch was locked and she had the keys on her.

“I am annoyed that people don’t have anything better to do with their time,” Schultz added.

When her truck was stolen, it had two car seats and was loaded with groceries that Schultz had purchased earlier in the evening.
