Penhold peace officer’s car smashed, items stolen

The Town of Penhold says a peace officer’s cruiser was recently smashed and numerous items from the inside were stolen.

Now the town is looking for the public’s assistance.

On Nov. 21, at around 1 a.m., the vehicle was “substantially damaged” when three men and a woman gained access to a locked compound.

Once inside, the suspects smashed the cruiser’s windows and stole various items, including a hand-held radar, tuning forks, black duty bag, black side seat organizer and contents.

The suspects also stole all the emergency equipment in the trunk of the car.

Penhold community peace officers believe one of the suspects has committed other offences around central Alberta wearing a Penhold peace officer uniform.

The suspects were last seen driving a dark 2013 to 2017 Jeep Cherokee, with six headlights and a silver roof rack.
