It's been a busy week for Thorsby and Breton RCMP after multiple thefts were reported, including one occurring at a cemetery. 

Mounties responded to two calls on August 9, the first being a break and enter to a business at Mulhurst Bay. 

Police say sometime during the overnight hours of August 8 the compound to a business located on the east end of Mulhurst on Highway 616 was entered and several vehicles were rummaged through.

Entry was gained by ramming the front gate, black paint was left behind where the gate was damaged.

The second call came from Thorsby, with the complainant reporting a theft from a motor vehicle on 49th Avenue. 

Police suspect sometime during the late night of August 8 or the early morning or August 9 the victim’s SUV was broken into and several items were stolen. Included amongst the stolen items was a silver cross that was hanging from the rear view mirror. 

The police have released a photo of the stolen cross, due to it being of extreme sentimental value to the owner. 

On August 10 police received a complaint of a theft of various lawn care tools at Fisherton Cemetery at Rundle Mission near Pigeon Lake.

The theft is thought to have occurred sometime between July 27 and August 2 with a shed on the property being entered by a lock being cut. 

Stolen from inside the shed was a Stihl line trimmer, a Husqvarna chainsaw and a Toro blower.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents are urged to call Thorsby RCMP at 780-789-3951; or Crime Stoppers.
