Reward offered for return of lighthouse

A miniature lighthouse was recently stolen off of our back deck, inside our fenced yard.

Dear Editor,

A miniature lighthouse was recently stolen off of our back deck, inside our fenced yard. Someone had the gall to come in our yard and steal this approximately 30 inch tall lighthouse that was given to us by my wife’s deceased mother.

It has more sentimental value than the person who stole it is worth. If anyone brings it back in this same condition to the house it was stolen from, no charges will be laid.

If anyone recently received this lighthouse as a gift from someone, well I don’t have to say what kind of person gave it to you.

There is a $500 reward for the safe return of the lighthouse and the arrest of the person or persons who stole it. The police have been notified and can be contacted at 403-887-3333, but anyone with information on the whereabouts of the lighthouse can contact me as well at 403-391-6313.

I’m appalled by the recent vandalism, thefts and vehicle break ins in our town. Why would anyone do these despicable acts? Whoever is doing these things needs to take a good look at where they’re headed in life.

Brad Inkster,

Sylvan Lake
