Police across central Alberta are urging people to be wary if they are approached to buy ‘gold’ jewellery.
Over the past couple of weeks, RCMP in Ponoka have had reports of potential fraudsters attempting to sell jewellery that the people state is gold.
According to police, the jewellery is fake and part of a scam that has been seen elsewhere in Alberta over the past couple of years.
If you are approached by someone trying to sell jewellery, you are asked to contact the Ponoka RCMP detachment at (403) 783-4472.
Back on April 15, RCMP were called to a Ponoka business located on 66 Street — in the Froman Industrial Park — to investigate a break and enter. According to police, the suspects damaged a gate in order to gain access to the yard site and then stole a white 1999 Dodge Ram pick up truck with an Alberta licence plate BVS8084.
Ponoka RCMP are still looking into the case and if anyone has information regarding the suspects or circumstances surrounding this or any other crime, they are asked to please call the detachment (403) 783-4472.
