RCMP searching for suspects

Ponoka RCMP are investigating several incidents and, in many cases, still looking for suspects.

• Sept. 17, police arrested a 30-year-old man who is now charged with theft and disturbing the peace following a shoplifting complaint at Sobey’s Liquour Store on Hwy. 2A.

Also that day, RCMP attended a situation on 48 Ave. where a semi-trailer hauling farm equipment caught some overhead wires and broke a utility pole. There were no injures and no word on whether a ticket was issued.

• Sept. 18, a church on Township Road 422 was reportedly broken into with a tv and cash stolen. Police are still investigating.

• Sept. 19, a pair of suspects are being sought in a mailbox theft on Secondary Hwy. 604 after a person was pepper sprayed. A Caucasian man and woman were driving a silver coloured Crown Victoria. The man had short orange hair and a flat brimmed hat, while the woman had tattoos on her arms and brown shoulder length curly hair. Police are still searching for the suspects and continue to investigate.

That same day, a vehilce stolen from Chestermere was located parked next to a garage on 51 Ave.

• Sept. 21, police were called to investigate the theft of a black 2016 Dodge Ram pick up truck from 50 St. with Alberta licence plate BGY 5412.
