Ponoka RCMP hoping for information to track down items taken in pair of thefts

A recent rural break and enter has police hoping for some help and a family wanting some important items returned.

Ponoka RCMP were called to a home along Secondary Highway 792 on July 30 after the owners came back to find the residence had been broken into.

It was found that unknown suspect(s) entered the garage sometime in the afternoon hours and then accessed the home through the garage.

Once inside, three firearms along with some electronics and various other items were stolen. In addition, a very important necklace that contains the ashes of a family member is also missing.

As well, a recently restored 1969 Chevrolet C10 truck was also taken from the garage.

Police are continuing to investigate and are urging anyone seeing the truck or necklace, who may have information regarding the missing firearms or know who might be involved to contact the Ponoka detachment immediately at (403) 783-4472.

Tips can also be anonymously called into CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Missing a radio

RCMP are also looking for the owner of a tape deck and radio player, which may have been stolen from a vehicle. The item was seized by police from the parking lot at Ponoka Secondary Campus on July 24. Anyone missing such an item is asked to call the detachment.
