Vandalism on Highway 2A


  • Sep. 21, 2011 4:00 p.m.

On Sept. 14 at approximately 3:30 a.m. three businesses were vandalized along Highway 2A; Subway, the Tourist Information Centre and Servus Credit Union all had glass broken.

A 20-year-old man from British Columbia with blood on his shirt and arms was seen by a member of the RCMP. Surveillance cameras show the man throwing a fire extinguisher into the Servus Credit Union building. Subway’s alarm went off when the front door of the restaurant was broken. The suspect was inebriated at the time and will be charged with three counts of mischief.

Wallet taken from unlocked car

On Sept. 14 at 1 p.m. a wallet was stolen from the dashboard of an unlocked car at the Ponoka courthouse. The victim’s identification was still in the wallet when found but $200 was missing.

Distracted driver rolls van

RCMP say a 24-year-old woman rolled her van recently when she unbuckled her seat belt to check on the status of some kids in the back seat. The driver was unaware of the curve in the road and had to jerk the vehicle back in to the lane, which made it roll over. Several of the four occupants were taken to the hospital and then released.

A mailbox on Range Road 262 was burned by someone in a jacked up black three quarter ton Dodge pickup on Sept. 17 between 7:30 and 8 p.m. A witness at the scene was unable to get a license plate number.
