Police are looking for a 2007 or 2008 Toyota Tacoma with a double cab, black side-view mirrors, a canopy and a dark, plastic bug screen mounted on the hood.

RCMP say the bug screen could have been removed, but would have damage on the passenger side and the passenger side mirror could either be damaged or recently replaced.
