Vehicle theft and attempted diesel fuel theft has the RCMP investigating.

Two male suspects and a female suspect attempted to steal diesel from a parked semi truck in Chaplin on April 9 to fuel up a stolen Dodge Ram from Moose Jaw. Vehicle documentation shows the truck registered in Winnipeg.

The trio of suspects then stole a Honda minivan, which was recovered April 10 from a business in an industrial area on the east side of Swift Current.

After ditching the van, the suspects stole a pair of Ford F250 trucks from that same business - one of the trucks was recovered later south of Swift Current, though one still remains outstanding.

That unrecovered stolen truck has an Alberta license plate of BVZ4631. The silver truck reportedly has "Sanjel" decals on the doors.

Anyone with information is asked to call the nearest RCMP detachment.
