In the morning hours of Oct. 13, 2012, an unknown suspect(s) stole a John Deer backhoe from a construction site near 49 St. and 51 Ave.  The driver is believed to have traveled down 50 Ave. in Wetaskiwin to the Strip mall on 48 St. 

     The driver entered into the parking lot and ran the bucket of the backhoe into the exterior of the Curves of Women’s business causing 

 

extensive exterior and interior damage.  The driver backed the machine up and continued south slamming the bucket of the backhoe again into a parked van on the property of Chapman Electric.

     The driver fled the scene and left the backhoe with the van suspended on two wheels.  Minimal damage was done to the van.  However, extensive structural damage was caused to the shed on the property that enabled the van from tipping sideways.

     

If you have information regarding this or any other unsolved crime, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or log on to www.tipsubmit.com.  Your calls or internet reports to Crime Stoppers are not traced or recorded.  You never have to identify yourself and you never have to testify in court.  If your information leads to an arrest of a suspect, recovery of stolen property or seizure of illegal drugs, you will qualify for a cash reward.  At Central Alberta Crime Stoppers we need your help in solving crime.  Remember, we want your information, not your name.
