Stolen vehicles were the top call getter for RCMP in Barrhead this past week. They had 70 reports come into the detachment in total, of which, seven were for cars taken.
On August 4th, a Dodge truck was taken but it was recovered the same day. 24 hours later, a minivan was stolen that was also recovered the same day, near Mayerthorpe.
Mounties had problems with mail box and fuel thefts this week as well. Luckily, RCMP say that surveillance videos identified one suspect in relation to the gas’n’dash.
