Thief In Canada Tries To Make His Getaway In Red Canoe


Good morning. I'm David Greene with another installment of Only in Canada. It comes from Halifax, Nova Scotia, where police responded to a burglary. The caller identified a getaway vehicle, a red canoe. The cops didn't even give chase. They just watched from both sides of the harbor until the culprit paddled his getaway vehicle to a park called the Dingle. He then ran for the woods, but officers caught him. They arrested him, took the canoe and recovered the allegedly stolen item, which was a sword. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
