Southfork Invasion

Pipestone Flyer


 For the past few weeks the Southfork subdivision of Leduc has seen a dramatic increase of teenage vandalism. It began with the ringing of doorbells after midnight and the taking of solar lights and has proceeded to the vandalizing of vehicles.

 The number of reported incidents has increased to the point that the RCMP is patrolling the area for the foreseeable future. Enough reports and been made to identify some of the individuals as young teenagers in the fourteen to sixteen age group.

 One group of “intruders” came into a fenced backyard and attempted to steal a “solar” light only to find it hardwired into the ground!

 Many residents are wondering about the parents who have these children and are not monitoring their whereabouts at that time of night. The group includes girls as well as boys. Surprisingly these individuals are generally well dressed in light color shirts and  in jeans or shorts. They have also become very brazen as they rarely “run” when homeowners intercede in their activity, often just walk away to return shortly after being disturbed from their actions.

 The Southfork Residents Association has a number of members that communicate with each other as soon as an incident occurs and call the police complaint department at 780-980-7267.

 This quick response has to date kept the seriousness of the incidents to a minimum. Unfortunately, unless parents get more involved in knowing where their children are after midnight a serious incident is only waiting to happen!
