A bride and groom’s wedding day bliss was disrupted by the theft of about $5,000 in cash and cheques from their reception.

Innisfail RCMP are looking for suspects who stole the money from the Penhold Community Hall sometime between 3 and 11 a.m. on Sept. 1.

The incident is believed to have occurred after the reception ended in the early morning hours of Sept. 1, and the couple and some of their guests left.

When the group returned in the morning, they noticed the money had been stolen.

Innisfail RCMP said there were some concerns that the hall had been left unlocked and with the nature of the party there were many people coming and going. There was no sign of forced entry into the hall.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact the Innisfail RCMP at 403-227-3342 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
