A tip from the public led Quesnel RCMP members to recover a stolen vehicle in the Bouchie Lake area on Oct. 10.

A Dodge pick-up truck was located abandoned in a small ravine near Blackwater Road after officers responded to information given by a local citizen.

The Prince George police dog service was deployed to attempt to track the suspect, but Quesnel RCMP Sgt. Chris Riddle said unfortunately no one was arrested in relation to the crime.

The Dodge pick-up had been reported stolen in Quesnel at an earlier date, said Riddle.
