Violette Motors posted this security camera video showing someone walking onto the lot on Queen Street last Friday night and stealing a black Ford Escape.  Police say the stolen SUV has been located about 60 miles (100km) away in Saint Quentin, New Brunswick.  A reward was offered to the person who found the vehicle.

Edmundston Police Force have since identified a suspect in this crime. We'll have further details as they become available.
