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.

Between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. the residence was broken into and several items were stolen from the residence including two firearms which were taken from a secured gun cabinet. Some of the items stolen are of sentimental value to the owners. The home owners were not home at the time of the break-in.
