EDMONTON - Police have made an arrest in a case of vandalism to two antique cars that happened seven years ago.
Between April 14 and April 15, 2012, someone broke into a locked barn in Parkland County and removed a 1925 Ford Model T and a 1965 Studebaker, and destroyed them.
The suspects drove the Studebaker into the yard, where it became stuck in the mud. It was then set on fire.
The Model T was pushed outside, where the suspects smashed the windows, and caused extensive damage to the body, including burns.
Thanks to new information, RCMP recently arrested two men in the case.
