Calgarians love their trucks, but one beloved ride was recently taken and ended up in a creek. Police are looking for suspects after a golden truck was stolen from an auto shop and turned up by a river embankment a month later. They've released the video of the theft in hopes that someone will remember seeing the great golden truck.

The eye-catching vehicle with a "noticeable lift" was taken from the fenced compound of Divita Auto Design Shop around 1 a.m. on Saturday, February 1.

Police say the suspect first loaded it into a flatbed trailer after breaking through the fence, then towed it out with a different truck.

The stolen vehicle was described as a custom 2018 Dodge Ram, with an original blue frame custom-painted gold.

Next time the truck was seen, it was crashed down an embankment of McLean Creek on Thursday, February 27, around 9:30 a.m. Police say it was "heavily damaged."

"Given its unique and distinctive appearance, police believe that someone in the community may remember seeing this truck," wrote Calgary Police in their release.

If you have any information, you can contact police at 403-266-1234. Alternatively, you can submit a tip anonymously via CrimeStoppers either through the phone at 1-800-222-8477 or online on their website.

The suspect's own vehicle was described as a "green Dodge Ram, with lighter-colour paneling on the sides." Perhaps the suspect was on the market for an upgrade?

Out of all the places to have your vehicle stolen, Calgary is statistically the most likely.

However, it's less because of an abundance of car thieves and more due to the brutal winters that have got Calgarians leaving their engines running to preheat the cab.  

Dodge thefts are relatively uncommon in Canada — a majority of the most commonly stolen cars are Fords. However, for this shiny ride, there must have been an exception.
