Break and enters on RCMP hit list

Ponoka police briefs

Three break-ins that took place over just four days have Ponoka RCMP busy looking for suspects.

Two of the incidents were reported on Sept. 25, one at the Northcott Care Centre and the other being a vehicle that was gone through at 7-11.

After being called to Northcott, officers were taken to a trailer on the property that was broken into and a lawn mower inside was missing.

That same day, police attended the parking lot of the 7-11 after someone noticed a vehicle parked there had a variety of items stolen from inside.

The last break-in occurred on Sept. 28 at a home located along 50 (Main) Street where several antique items were taken.

Officers are continuing to investigate all three incidents.

And in what was a scary situation for some residents along 62 St. in the north end of Ponoka, officers responded to a sighting of a cougar in a nearby field. A search was conducted, but the animal was not located.

Anyone with information on these or any other crime are urged to call the RCMP detachment at (403) 783-4472. Those wishing to remain anonymous should call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or go online to You do not have to reveal your identity and tips that lead to an arrest may qualify for a reward of up to $2,000.
