Vancouver, Canada – October 13, 2020
An RCMP detachment responded to reports that a garbage truck had been stolen. They were told a man had jumped in the truck while the driver was out, then took off.
The thief stopped and tried to hijack a car. Being unsuccessful, he took off in the garbage truck again. Mounties working with the Abbotsford Police Department stopped the truck with a spike belt, a device designed to halt fleeing vehicles by puncturing their tires.
