Airdrie RCMP were able to stop a driver in a stolen truck with a spike belt Saturday night, police said in a release.

Police say they were alerted to a truck stolen from a Sylvan Lake business just before 8 p.m.

They tracked the vehicle with GPS as it entered Airdrie.

Police slowed the truck with a spike belt and it eventually hit a ditch west of the town on Highway 567 near Range Road 24.

The driver, a 32-year-old Red Deer man, was arrested with the help of a police dog.

He was taken to a Calgary hospital with minor injuries.

The man is facing charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000, prohibited driving and running from police.

The suspect is scheduled for a Calgary court appearance later this week.
