High River RCMP Investigating Multiple Thefts in Town


High River RCMP are investigating a couple of thefts in the town.

Sometime late Tuesday or early Wednesday of this week a number of antique fire hydrants were removed from a home in High River.  

Police say it's believed they were taken by someone after scrap metal.

And Thursday management of the Willows just off Centre Street saw a man removing material and when they confronted him he told them he was with Tervita, the company hired for reconstruction.

When challenged he fled in a white 1997 Dodge truck full of copper pipe and wire. The licence number is BHZ 8708

RCMP are reminding everyone that legitimate employees will be displaying picture identification and will be happy to show it if asked. Anyone with concerns can call the RCMP complaint line at 403-652-2356.
