Police are asking people to keep an eye out for a stolen truck.

Westville and Stellarton police issued a release Tuesday stating that they are looking for a 2010 grey GMC Sierra that was stolen from AW Leil Cranes on Cowan Street Tuesday morning. The truck has the company name AW Leil on the side and has a Nova Scotia license plate FDW898.

Police believe the male suspect involved stole a Ford F150 from Park Lane in Westville Monday evening and was involved in a hit and run in New Glasgow.

Stellarton and Westville police chief Don Hussher said the person evaded police last evening in both towns and caused significant property damage by driving through yards.

The stolen F150 was involved in an accident on Cowan Street in Westville at 3:19 a.m. which caused a power outage in parts of the town.

The person then left the scene on foot and police believe went to Leil Cranes on Barkers Lane where he stole the truck.

Around 7:43 a.m. the suspect again evaded police on Cowan Street and caused more damage to properties. At around 7:58 police stopped following the suspect as the vehicle sped off west towards Alma on Highway 4.

Anyone with information can contact the Westville or Stellarton police at (902) 752-6160 or Crime Stoppers.
