$10K Reward For Information After Truck Drives Into Gas Station

Fort McMurray, AB, Canada / MIX 103.7

A $10,000 reward is being posted for any information after truck drove into a rural gas station.

Wood Buffalo RCMP were called out to the Petro-Canada on Monday on the Fort McMurray #468 First Nation, just outside of Anzac, after getting reports of damage to the store.

The First Nation and Christina River Enterprises, the company that runs the station, are offering the money after seeing the damage.

CEO of Christina River Enterprises Byron Bates tells Mix News it was like a ‘bomb’ went off.

“The coolers were all smashed in the back, all the shelves were broken, merchandise everywhere, there’s glass all over the parking lot – it was a real mess.”

The police note the ‘white flat deck Dodge Ram’ that was used was apparently stolen from a local business in Gregoire Lake Reserve.

Bates says the whole incident is just confusing as it seems nothing appeared to be stolen.

“Was he there just to damage, just to cause damage to our store, that’s what I couldn’t figure out.”

The station has partially reopened, selling gas and cigarettes. Bates adds there’s no exact timeline on when the rest of the store will be open for business.
