Church attacked again
There has been more mischief to the church on 54 Avenue, Some youths set a small fire in the surrounding trees, fortunately a local citizen went after the fire with his hose and contacted the Rimbey Fire Department who attended and ensured the fire was out. Police ask if anyone has any information about the ongoing mischief to please contact your local detachment. Also please keep an eye out for suspicious activity.
Us exciting as…
Police received a report of a suspicious person who had been sitting in his vehicle for more than three hours on Main Street. Upon attendance it was learned that the male was hired to watch the cement dry. It turns out the only thing suspicious about this complaint is that anybody would actually want this job.
Motorists need to pay attend
Police responded to eight motor vehicle collisions, the majority of these collisions could have been avoided if the drivers had been paying more attention to the road. This may also be a prudent time to remind everyone of the current initiative of seat belt enforcement. Police from all over the province are focusing on seat belt enforcement this month. So “click it or get a ticket.”
Stop for school buses
Police have received multiple complaints of motorists not obeying the stop signs on school buses. If you are guilty of doing this please cease this activity because if police catch you, the fine will be in excess of $400.
