The RCMP is looking for the public’s assistance in locating the woman seen in this surveillance footage. The woman allegedly stole a bottle of liquor from a liquor store and took off in a getaway vehicle on April 13.

RCMP responded to a theft on April 13 just after noon. A woman walked into a liquor store and grabbed a bottle of booze before leaving the store without paying. The employee followed the woman out of the store when she took off running, jumping into a grey Dodge extended cab that sped off.

Shack goes awry

On April 15 RCMP were called about a missing fishing shack. The shack, which measures 6’ by 8’ and has a wood stove, was placed on Gull Lake for the winter. After trying to load it up earlier in the week the owner returned to find the shack missing. The owner checked with Ponoka County to make sure they hadn’t removed the shack and after realizing they hadn’t phoned Ponoka RCMP. The shack is made of chipboard and has a six-inch stove pipe sticking out of it. If you have any information of the whereabouts of the fishing shack please phone the RCMP.

Impaired issued

RCMP issued three impaired driving charges over the past week. Two of the charges came during the daytime hours while one occurred at night. Two of the charges were issued right in the town while the third was handed out on Highway 2. Police want to remind the public not to drive under the influence of alcohol.

Deer causes rollover

Around 11:30 p.m. on April 17 a Mazda Protégé travelling south on Highway 2 swerved to avoid a deer near the 450b exit. The vehicle lost control and rolled twice before landing back on its wheels. The occupants of the vehicle weren’t injured in the accident.
