Thieves entered a commercial site in the Pollockville area and stole approximately 100′ to 200′ of copper wire on Sun. Dec. 29 between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m.

Thieves target these commercial sites to steal batteries and copper wire which is then converted to cash through recycling.

The batteries and copper are difficult to track which make it a lucrative commodity for thieves.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact the Hanna RCMP administrative line at 403-854-3393.

Tips can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers who pays cash rewards for information that leads to the arrest of a suspect.

The RCMP is asking the public to report all suspicious activity and provide as much detail about the activity as possible.

Never put yourself in jeopardy to obtain information about suspicious activity and never approach or pursue alleged suspects.
