A John Deere tractor got stolen. The RCMP gave pursuit
, which involved at one point bumming a ride on a snowmobile.
Blackfalds RCMP got a call about a break and enter at a rural address where firearms and other items were stolen, and then got another call about a stolen John Deere 6400 tractor with a front-end bucket being driven away across the fields.
Police gave chase after stopping a snowmobiler and being offered a ride, following the tractor as it crashed through farmers’ fences and stands of trees.
Finally, the driver at the wheel of the stolen farm implement, while trying to evade police, stalled it while trying to go up a hill.
When he tried to back up, he lost control and rolled the tractor.
