Police are looking for three female suspects in connection with the theft of firearms.

On December 14, 2016 Wetaskiwin RCMP responded to a report of a break in to a rural residence which occurred sometime during that day. The RCMP are seeking public assistance in identifying a composite sketch of a female who may be a person of interest in this event.
