Two rural break-ins, thefts: RCMP 0
Two break-ins at rural properties in the region are under investigation.
Area RCMP were called July 24 about a break-in and theft near Friedensruh in the Rural Municipality of Stanley. Two dirt bikes were stolen from an unlocked barn - one orange in colour and the other black.
And then July 28, RCMP were called by another property owner in the R.M. of Roland about a break-in and theft from his shed. The lock for the shed door had been pried open, and the property was rummaged through with a number of hand tools missing.
The Area RCMP weekly report for the Altona, Morden and Carman detachments for July 23 to 30 also noted a fire in a field south of Road 243 in the RM of Rhineland July 24.
Two combines with attached headers had been working in a field, and a pickup truck also in the field had been running with a hot engine and underbelly that ignited the wheat. The headers were disconnected from the combines, but not before both sustained extensive damage.
