Lethbridge police have charged a Calgary man after break-ins at two Lethbridge car dealerships last week.
In a news release on Monday, Lethbridge police said they were called to a break and enter at Dunlop Ford along the 1500 block of Mayor Magrath Drive on Nov. 30 at 9:53 p.m. after a man reportedly drove a truck through a garage door.
They said the man grabbed a set of keys inside the garage and was confronted by employees. Police said the man ran to the parking lot where he found the F350 truck the keys belonged to and drove away.
According to the Lethbridge Police Service (LPS) release, officers were still at Dunlop Ford when that same man drove the stolen F350 into the garage door at another dealership, Bridge City Chrysler at 3200 – 1 Avenue South.
Police said the man stole the keys from a Fiat Spyder, and drove it down the street, where they believe he left it with the intent to come back and get it later.
