A downtown church was broken into sometime between Dec. 24 and 27. The culprits gained entrance into the building with force. After taking an undisclosed amount of cash and causing damage to some office furniture they then left through a different door and caused some damage to it as well.

The matter is still under investigation.

Forced out of car on Christmas

A 27-year-old woman from Edmonton was kicked out of a vehicle — not while in motion — at 11:15 a.m. on Christmas Day northbound on Highway 2. It was reported she was walking along the fast lane just north of Ponoka. Police attended but she declined to give further details on the situation. She was later transported to a women’s shelter.

Boxing Day dispute

Police were called to a dispute Dec. 26 at 9:30 p.m. involving a 36-year-old man who is reported to have kicked a 47-year-old woman in the stomach. RCMP attended the home on the 5600 block of 50 Avenue where they determined he had kicked her in the chest while she was sitting down. He was charged with assault.

Vehicle seized

A routine traffic stop Dec. 22 at 1:30 a.m. resulted in a 30-day seizure of a 33-year-old man’s vehicle. The licence plate did not match the vehicle’s and it was determined there was a provincial maintenance enforcement suspension on his licence for not paying child support. He was charged with driving while disqualified.

Fighting

Police are investigating a fight that broke out between an 18-year-old woman and two other women Dec. 23 at 2 a.m. at a downtown bar. It is reported the woman was punched in the head and her cellphone was broken.

Impaired driver

Police charged a 23-year-old man from Lacombe Dec. 23 at 3:30 a.m. after supplying two breath samples of blood-alcohol levels of .15. He was driving a Ford Focus when he pulled out in front of an officer and the windows appeared foggy.

Sister punches brother

Police were called to a home Dec. 24 at 11:30 a.m. after an 18-year-old girl allegedly tried to attack her brother with a pair of scissors. She is reported to have punched him in the face. The brother declined to lay charges as there appears to be some mental health factors involved in the incident.

Court date for youth

A press release from Ponoka RCMP has given an update on the youth charged as a result of the alleged gun threat on PCHS Dec. 21. He has been released on bail, with conditions taking into account the safety of the public, to appear at Ponoka Youth Court on Jan. 9 at 9:30 a.m.
