A vehicle reported stolen in West Grey yesterday morning was later found on fire in a wooded area.
West Grey Police say at 5:39 a.m. Tuesday a report came in about a Ford Escape that had been stolen overnight from a residence on Concession 2.
Then at 1 p.m., police received another report about a vehicle on fire in Glenelg in a field south of Concession 6, just east of Sideroad 40.
Markdale firefighters attended the scene and arrived to find the vehicle completely up in flames. The West Grey Fire Department also attended to assist.
