Sundre RCMP Investigate Break & Enter To Local Business

Sundre RCMP are investigating following a break & enter to the Sundre IGA grocery store during the early morning hours of Friday, November 15th. The culprits fled the scene in a pick up truck and police are asking anyone who may have information related to this incident or can assist with identifying those responsible to contact Sundre RCMP at 403-638-3675.

Sundre, Alberta ~ On Friday, November 15th at 1:55am, the RCMP Sundre detachment received a complaint that a white Chevrolet pickup truck forcefully backed through the west doors of the Sundre IGA grocery store.

Once the doors were smashed, two males entered the store, and approached the ATM inside the west entrance of the store.

One of the males dragged a chain into the store, clearly with the intention to haul the ATM out of the store. The males quickly came to the realization that the ATM was not stocked with money, and that the access door was open.

The males quickly returned to the vehicle and fled the scene in the pickup truck. The truck was found abandoned on Hwy 22 north of Sundre several minutes later and determined to have been stolen from the Stettler area the previous evening.

The event was captured on the business's security camera and the individuals are hooded, wearing masks and gloves.

"It is evident that these thieves took some time and planned this event only to find that our local business took preventative measures to thwart such a theft. Our office praises such vigilance though the business still experienced a disruption to their operations as well as suffering a cost for the damages sustained by these ignorant individuals." stated Corporal Joe Mandel.

Sundre RCMP are asking anyone who may have information related to this incident or can assist with identifying those responsible, please contact the Sundre RCMP at 403-638-3675. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the "P3 Tips" app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.

    Mountain View County councillors will not be receiving a raise in 2020. Reeve Bruce Beattie says a survey done a couple of years ago showed their council compensation was significantly lower than other rural municipalities of comparable size. As a result, a policy was created to close a 10 per cent gap over a 4 year period. However, he says council decided this week to lead by example while they were approving the budget for 2020. The move by council to not accept a 2.5 per cent wage increase next year will save Mountain View County $10,000 dollars.
