This morning at approximately 10:40 a.m., a semi-tractor was driving southbound on Highway 41, 15kms north of Consort near Highway 599 when the driver thought he was being pulled over by a police vehicle with lights that were activated.
The driver recognized the two suspects were not dressed in police uniforms and immediately confronted them after one of them demanded money from the victim while outside the semi-tractor.

- May have a large number on top of the roof "10"
- Decals which are believed to be similar to RCMP
