PINCHER CREEK, AB – The RCMP in Pincher Creek are asking for assistance in connection with a theft and poaching file.

According to a release from the Pincher Creek detachment, Mounties responded to the Beaver Mines Lake Provincial Campground with Alberta Conservation Officers on Thursday, Feb. 28.

Mounties said that an unknown individual, or individuals, had cut the locks to several gates and then broke into three sea cans.

Once inside, they stole six “specialized” brand Fat Bikes, helmets, sets of handlebar mittens and seat storage bags. The RCMP said that the value of the stolen items is over $10,000.

When officers were on scene investigating the theft, they spotted a blood trail near the sea cans that led them to a head of a cow moose, a cape and entrails from a field dressed moose.

Police believe that the two incidents are connected are were committed by the same person/people.

Anyone with further details about this is asked to contact the Pincher Creek RCMP at (403) 627-6010 or call their local police detachment.
