RCMP members patrolling the area Thursday at about 2:30 a.m. found a Dodge pickup truck on fire. The vehicle was reported stolen the previous morning from a driveway in the 7000 block of Dickinson Road.

When police checked a vehicle nearby they found and arrested a man, 19, and a 15-year-old female.
