Military truck stolen from Gagetown

The Mounties have arrested a man after a military vehicle from Base Gagetown was stolen over the weekend.

RCMP in Oromocto say the Light Support Vehicle was stolen from the base compound sometime late Saturday night or early Sunday morning and found about 50 kilometres away when it got stuck in a ditch in the Beaver Dam area.

Capt. Evelyn Lamire tells the Telegraph-Journal that in the three years she has been in Gagetown, it's the first time she has heard of something like this.

A man in his 20's was picked up for impaired operation of a vehicle and possession of stolen property.
