A couple thefts from fuel tanks on farms have occurred with very little suspect information to proceed with an investigation on.

On December 17th, 2018 Olds RCMP received a report of a stolen 2015 Renn RFM350 Feed Wagon being stolen off of a farm west of Olds. The approximate value of the property stolen was $18,000.

RCMP would like to request the assistance of rural homeowners to be on the lookout for a piece of farm equipment matching this feed wagon that may be parked or abandoned near their property and report to RCMP if it seems out of the ordinary.
