Over the past several months the Slave Lake RCMP have received an increasing number of thefts from local businesses. This has a greater focus on policing resources on those believed responsible for an increase in patrols in the affected areas.
Earlier in the month, four people were arrested and three were charged after alert employees notified police of suspicious activity in their store.
The Slave Lake RCMP encourages members of the public and store employees to remain diligent and to report any and all suspicious activity to the police.
