RCMP investigating vandalism to two central Alberta cellphone towers

Cellphone towers in Lacombe County and Rocky Mountain House area vandalized

RCMP are asking for the public’s help after two TELUS cellphone towers were vandalized this month.

On Jan. 3, a cell tower in Lacombe County was rendered inoperable as a result of vandalism. TELUS crews responded immediately to maintain service for their customers, and the RCMP launched an investigation.

Another cell tower was vandalized on Jan. 23 in the Rocky Mountain House area. Again, TELUS responded immediately to address the issue.

The RCMP are working with TELUS Security to investigate these incidents. There has been no determination made as to whether the incidents are related.

If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the “P3 Tips” app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.
