Attempted theft of side by side
The attempted theft of a side by side ATV twice on the same day of Oct. 28 at a rural residence has police looking for suspects.
Officers say a suspect is believed to have attempted to steal the ATV with the wrong keys early on Oct. 28. The attempt failed but later on the same day at approximately 11:40 p.m. the suspects returned. It was an alarm that alerted the homeowner of someone being in their barn.
The caller said they saw an individual running out of the barn with the owner’s dog giving chase. The suspect then called for the owner to call their dog off, which subsequently chased the man into a nearby field. RCMP and the K-9 unit attended where they tracked the footprints to Maskwacis.
Police say they are looking for a First Nations man believed to be under 20 years of age. RCMP advises taking necessary precautions to lock up their outbuildings.
