100 Mile House RCMP found more than a vehicle in the ditch when they attended a single-vehicle accident on highway 24 near Lone Butte.
On Monday, police located a single truck with a low bed trailer and excavator in the ditch.
“Further investigation revealed the truck and excavator were possibly stolen out of Kelowna,” said S/Sgt. Svend Nielsen.
“The reported lone occupant of the truck had fled the area. Some illicit drugs and cannabis were located in the cab of the truck.”
The vehicles were seized, pending further action, and the investigation is continuing.
