Theft of branding irons and money transfer fraud

Money Transfer fraud
A lone male attended the TD Canada Trust branches in Three Hills, Hanna and Stettler on June 2, 2017 and attempted to fraudulently transfer money from a victim’s account to another.
The male provided fraudulent ID in the name of an account holder and sought to have $18 000 transferred to another account under the premise that it was to be used to help his daughter purchase a vehicle.
Information about this fraud attempt was forwarded to the Stettler RCMP in mid September after the branches worked together with their security personnel to provide a comprehensive package outlining the failed attempts.
Attached is a photo of the male. If the public recognizes this individual, they are encouraged to call the Stettler RCMP directly or call Crimestoppers.

Theft of branding irons

Someone stole three branding irons from a seasonal display at the Tim Horton’s in Hanna, Ab. sometime between Sept. 25 – 26 .
The branding irons are registered and each one is a capital letter (D, A, M). The letters are approximately six inches tall and the shaft is approximately 36 inches long.
The branding irons have tremendous sentimental value to the family that owns them as they used to belong to a late family member. They were temporarily loaned to Tim Hortons specifically for the seasonal display.
If anyone has information about this or any other crime they can call the Hanna RCMP Detachment or Crimestoppers.
