Written by ECA Review

This past week has shown that some undesirables have become active in the Town of Hanna as property thefts and attempted thefts have increased significantly.

On May 23, 2020 a lock was cut off of a storage unit on Railway Avenue and a Ford 302ci distributor, Ford 302ci engine headers and a B&M Unimatic shifter were taken.

On May 27, 2020 a lock was cut off of a storage shed at the Thrift Store.

Nothing was taken from the shed.

The same day, three locks were cut off of storage units at the Hanna Golf and Country Club but nothing was taken.

Also on May 27, a lock was cut off a gate at a business in Hanna and several thousand dollars worth of scrap copper and aluminium was taken.

On May 28, 2020, two suspects in a GMC Jimmy SUV went to the back of a business in Hanna and stole some batteries from a bin.

The batteries were likely taken for the purpose of selling to a recycler. 

The GMC SUV has the sunroof covered and is very noticeable.

One of the suspects is wearing a ball hat and lite coloured coveralls with possibly paint on them.

There have also been unconfirmed reports of gas being stolen from vehicles.

These crimes all occurred late in the evening or early in the morning when it was dark.

If you have security cameras, please check them for any suspicious activity on these dates.

Please report crimes or suspicious behaviour even if you believe it is too minor to report or if you don’t believe anything can be done.

The information is important for the RCMP to track crime trends and can be helpful when an arrest is made to link people to crimes they have committed.

A reported crime may not get solved every time, but unreported crimes will never get solved.

Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to contact the Hanna RCMP at 403-854-3391.

Anonymous information can also be provided through Crime Stoppers who will pay anonymous cash rewards for information that results in an arrest.
