WINNIPEG police have arrested a man after a pickup truck belonging to the Canadian Forces was stolen from 17 Wing and driven onto an active runway at Richardson International Airport early Wednesday morning.
The control tower alerted airport security patrols about the unauthorized vehicle.
It was stopped and the man was taken into custody without incident shortly after 5:15 a.m.
Winnipeg Airports Authority spokeswoman Christine Alongi said the runway was closed for about 20 minutes.
"Nothing was disrupted because there were no incoming or outgoing flights. We're not sure how he entered the air field," she said.
The police major crimes unit is investigating the incident.
