Two break and enters could be related

There were two break and enter incidents in the early morning hours of Oct. 26.

Police responded to a call of a cow with its head stuck in a bucket Oct. 22.

There were two break and enter incidents in the early morning hours of Oct. 26. The first was along 49 Street and the second on 50 Street.

In both instances there was forcible entry into the building with an undisclosed amount of cash taken. Security video from the building on 50 Street shows a person at 4:30 a.m. wearing dark clothing and what looks to be a balaclava over their face. Police believe the incidents are related and many culprits may be involved.

Bovine bucket

Police responded to a call of a cow with a bucket stuck on its head Oct. 22 at 2:15 p.m. south of Highway 53 on Range Road 243. Somehow it had become stuck on the cow and it was unable to see where it was going. The bucket was removed and the cow was free to go.

SUV rollover

The Ponoka Integrated Traffic Unit assisted with an SUV rollover Oct. 23 at 9:45 p.m. on Highway 2 south of Ponoka. A black 2001 Nissan Pathfinder was driving while cruise control was enabled, the driver lost control of the vehicle and rolled seven or eight times before coming to a stop.

A 29-year-old female from Calgary and her passenger were taken to a Lacombe hospital where they were treated and released.

Police believe the use of cruise control in winter road conditions could have been a factor in the roll over. There were three cruise control related collisions over the weekend.

If you have information on any crime call Ponoka RCMP at 403-783-4472 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
