RCMP tracking vandals on rampage in community

Vandals who broke into the community centre, smashed a window at the Shell gas station and broke into the high school

In the early morning hours of Nov. 20

Vandals who broke into the community centre, smashed a window at the Shell gas station and broke into the high school could soon be apprehended and charged.

Rimbey RCMP Const. Luke Halvorson said the forensic identification section has gathered evidence from the crime scenes.

“We don’t have suspects, but we do have persons of interest,” he said.

The incidents occurred between midnight and 5:30 a.m. Nov. 20.

Recreation director Rick Kreklewich found the damage when he arrived at work Tuesday morning.

“It was very disheartening to walk into,” he said.

Kreklewich said the culprits smashed the front glass in the north door and stole a television that displays game scheduling and a laptop. The concession was also broken into, the cash register broken and food and a small amount of cash taken.

Kreklewich said staff worked hard to clean the up the damage and keep operations running smoothly.

Halvorson said a few items were smashed at the school.

“It seemed they were breaking things just for the sake of breaking them,” he said.
