Summerside police got an early start on some thieves who stole a truck from a P.E.I. dealer's lot early Tuesday morning.

At about 1:30 a.m. police noticed an empty parking spot in a local car dealership. They confirmed a 2009 Ford F150 had been stolen.

A Maritime-wide police alert was issued for the truck and just over an hour later, Shediac RCMP located it in New Brunswick.

A 24-year-old Summerside man and a 19-year-old Calgary woman now face charges of break and enter and theft of a motor vehicle.
