BLACKFALDS- On February 6, Blackfalds RCMP were called to the theft of a pickup truck on Airport Drive in Springbrook. 

The complainant reported that his truck, a grey 2007 Dodge Ram 1500, bearing Alberta licence plate USS949, was taken from outside his work place. 

 At the time of the theft the truck was left running with the keys in the ignition. 

The incident, captured by security cameras, shows a black Hyundai Elantra arrive and a woman exit the car.

She jumps into the running truck and speeds away, then the driver of the Hyundai flees from the scene as the theft takes place, police say. 

The female suspect is described as in her latelate 20s, slim build with black shoulder length hair. Mounties are asking for help identifying her.  

Investigators are asking anyone who may have information regarding the theft to contact Blackfalds RCMP at (403) 885-3300. 

If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or by internet at  

RCMP add that Crime prevention is a shared responsibility.

Members of the community are reminded of their role in preventing criminal activity: 

- Lock up houses, sheds, vehicles and any other property that is easily accessible

- Never leave running vehicles unlocked. Nearly half of the vehicle thefts in Alberta over the past year have had the keys left inside

- Take photos and record serial numbers of property

- If you see or suspect suspicious activity notify police immediately
