The theft of copper wire and damage to a chain link fence was reported at Link Energy in Kneehill County. Home and business owners are urged to install a high definition security system. Lower priced systems often provide poor surveillance footage that is of little or no use in a police investigation. Recent check-stops have resulted in two impaired driving charges.

There were five calls on lost/found items. If you have lost an item please provide the details to the RCMP. If you have found an item please drop it off at the RCMP office in Three Hills.
