A man who left his pickup truck overnight on a forest road got an unpleasant surprise when he returned to find the vehicle burned and completely destroyed.
On November 6, the man parked his 2001, red Mazda 4×4 on Kapak Road, located halfway between Nelson and Salmo.
The area is popular spot for cutting firewood, which is what the man had driven there to do. He left his truck parked on the remote road, unattended overnight. The next day he found it destroyed.
Salmo RCMP are investigating the case and ask anyone with information to contact them at 250-357-2212 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 to leave an anonymous tip.
