Feds: Canadian Man Had Stolen Truck in Yellowstone
A Canadian man faces a federal charge of transporting a stolen pickup after his arrest in Yellowstone National Park.
A criminal complaint filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Cheyenne charges Paul Cowie drove a pickup through Yellowstone’s northern entrance near Gardiner, Montana, without paying on June 1.
According to a criminal complaint, Yellowstone rangers determined that the truck had been reported stolen recently from Banff National Park in Alberta. The complaint states Cowie holds a driver’s license issued in Manitoba.
The complaint states Cowie told investigators he had taken the pickup without permission from a maintenance yard at Banff and drove it to Yellowstone.
Cowie hasn’t filed a response to the charge and faces a preliminary hearing Monday in Mammoth Hot Springs.
