Wood Buffalo RCMP are on the lookout after an unusual vehicle theft downtown on Thursday morning.
Police say a driver was lured out of his 2012 Nissan Murano when the suspect claimed the driver had struck another vehicle. When the driver exited the Murano to check, the suspect jumped in and drove off.
The vehicle is blue, and has the license plated BSR 1504. The suspect is described as a young aboriginal male. Police say he was wearing a dark-coloured hoodie at the time.
Corporal Sabrina Caterini said anyone who spots the vehicle should not approach it, but contact RCMP at 780-788-4040.
