Police investigating weekend hit and run where vehicle collided with home

Members of the Lethbridge Police Traffic Response Unit are investigating a hit and run after a stolen truck collided with a westside home and multiple parked vehicles causing more than $200,000 in damage.

On March 18, 2017 at approximately 2 a.m. police responded to a home along the 300 block of Laval Boulevard after receiving a report that a GMC Sierra had crashed into it. Upon arrival officers located the truck wedged up against the house, noted three parked vehicles had been struck and a fence had been knocked over. Investigation determined the truck had been stolen from Calgary.

No one was injured as a result of the collision and the subjects fled on foot prior to police arrival. Witnesses reported a male and female exited the vehicle and ran toward a nearby green strip. A search of the area was conducted but the subjects were not located.

The male is described as Caucasian, approximately 5’8 to 5’10, with a stocky build. He was wearing a red lumberjack-style jacket with a grey hood that was pulled up and a white toque.

The female is described as Caucasian or Aboriginal, heavier set with short black hair.

Investigation is ongoing.
