CPL. TERRY BEST/Stettler RCMP

Stettler RCMP responded to 40 calls for service over the past week with many minor in nature.

On May 25, a vehicle was damaged while it was parked on 51 Street near the Canada Post office. Damage was minimal.

On May 26, a Byemoor area resident reported his residence was broken into and culprits made off with his computer and attempted to steal his television. The matter is under investigation.

On May 27, a resident from the 5000 block of 52 Street reported the door to their garage was forced open. The matter is under investigation.

On May 28, a resident in the 6000 block of 53 reported a gasoline jerry can was taken from the property.

Also on May 28, a resident from the 6000 block of 40 Avenue had a deer head was stolen from his property.

Police would like to remind everyone to use caution when dealing with people who call offering deals which sound too good to be true. A local citizen reported receiving from what sounded like a call center and the caller offering a device that would reduce their electric bill up to 40%. The incident was referred to Fraudbusters who advised it was a scam. Often, the scam request is for a customer to forward $120 to $170 and wait for the device to be mailed. However, the customer never receives the device.
