During the past week, Stettler RCMP responded to 61 calls for service.

Early in the morning hours of June 7, a resident in the Buttermilk Slough area reported hearing what sounded like two gunshots. Police were unable to uncover the source of the noise. Police would like to remind everyone that careless use of a firearm is a criminal offence.

A moose on the loose was reported in the downtown area at about 8:30 a.m. on June 9. The baby moose wandered away and wasn’t located. The animal was also seen near 44 Avenue in the East Industrial Park on June 14.

On June 9, there was an incident at a local business in the 5100 block of 47 Avenue. A shop-lifter made off with some items. The suspect fled the area prior to police arriving and the matter is under investigation.

As a result of a traffic stop on June 10, a 40-year old male driver from the Killam area is facing charges of operating a motor vehicle without insurance, registration and no driver’s license. The man is scheduled to appear in provincial court in Stettler in August.

A 22 year old man is facing charges of mischief following an incident at a residence on 40 Avenue where property was damaged.

Police also responded to various noise complaints, traffic c collisions, driving complaints, false alarms and family disturbances.
