Stettler RCMP

Between Tuesday July 27 and Aug. 2, police responded to 54 calls for service.


On July 29 a break and enter was reported at a well site near the Botha area. Culprits gained entry through the fence surrounding the site and smashed the window in the building. The investigation is on-going.

On the same day, sometime overnight, culprits entered a resident’s garage in the Spruce Crescent area in Stettler and rummaged through a vehicle making off with golf clubs, a chain saw, weed eater, wallet and money. They also attempted to steal a snowmobile in the garage, but it is believed a neighbour, alerted by noise, scared them off.
