Sylvan Lake RCMP are seeking assistance in locating the person or persons responsible for a recent theft.

A four foot by four foot Rural Crime Watch sign belonging to Benalto & Area Rural Crime Watch Society was stolen from the post it had been fastened to near Kasha Farm Supply on Highway 766 south of Eckville.

Although the value of the theft is not significant, the act of stealing this particular sign, especially keeping in mind the purpose behind this sign in the first place, is a little disturbing to the police.

If you have information on the sign’s current whereabouts or the person(s) responsible for this theft, please call Sylvan Lake RCMP at 403-858-7200 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
