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 July 31 an attempted break and enter was reported to a gas field site south east of Stettler. A window was damaged in the attempt.

A well site near Big Valley was broken into on the same day and a quad was stolen. The investigation into these matters are still 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.

Police are still investigating.
