    Rimbey RCMP and Canada Post are teaming up to catch the criminals responsible for an epi-demic of mailbox break ins throughout the area and the latest break in to the towns post offi ce has meant even tighter securty meausres will be in place.

    Const. Carman Dutz said the break in to the post of-fi ce was discovered when a resident stopped in to pick up mail early Wednesday morning (Jan. 20). The doors to 14 mailboxes were pried open and mail may have been stolen.

    Police were immediately alerted.

    Dutz is hopeful whoever is responsible for the crime will soon be apprehended.

    While he noted seeing someone in the post offi ce picking up mail isnt sus-picious, seeing someone with a crow bar or screw driver demands immedi-ately attention.

    Call the RCMP at once, he said.

    Tips from the public help the RCMP to do their job. If you have any informa-tion regarding these or any other crimes, please call the local Rimbey RCMP Detachment at (403) 843-2224 or Crime Stoppers:

    Stealing mail is a crimi-nal offence and could net up to 10 years jail time, he added.

    Stealing mail from rural mailboxes has been somewhat of an epidemic throughout the province, he said, noting Canada Post is doing its part by moving mail boxes inside the municipalities.

    Lacombe County is inviting you to attend an interactive public meeting in your community during the month of February or March 2016 to facilitate updating the Countys Municipal Development Plan (MDP). This plan will guide how the County will grow and develop over the next 10 years, and will influence the policies that further regulate development under the Countys Land Use Bylaw (LUB).

    We want to find out what you think the important issues for future development are and how we can best plan for the next 10 years. This is your opportunity to shape the policies that will influence you and future development in the County.
