Cash Stolen During Break-in
Provost RCMP responded to a total of 41 calls between December 13, 2009 and January 2, 2010.

These calls included: activities relating to the 911 Act, break and enter (business), false alarms, other moving traffic violations, possession schedule II cannabis/derivatives, breach of the peace, traffic collisions, theft under $5,000, activities relating to the Family Relations Act, activities relating to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, Coroner's Act (sudden death), assaults, trespass at night among others.

On December 19 in the early hours of the morning, the Top 20 Restaurant located on 57th Avenue in Provost was broken into. The perpetrators gained entry through the side door of the lounge. There was extensive damage done to the office inside the building and to various equipment located inside the business. The ATM machine was also broken into as well as the VLT machine. A large number of items were taken from the business including; $5,400 cash, Sony digital camera, gold necklace, two watches, $3,600 from the ATM machine, a laptop computer in addition to various other items. Currently there are no suspects or witnesses to the crime therefore if anyone has any information that could assist police in the investigation it would be greatly appreciated.

Provost RCMP are urging residents to take precautions when driving in these winter months. As expected the number of vehicle collisions and traffic accidents have steadily increased significantly during recent weather.
Police are also advising residents of Provost and surrounding communities the importance of locking their vehicles and residences when left unattended and particularly at night before going to bed, as there have been a large number of thefts from vehicles, specifically vehicles that have been left unlocked in addition to various break and enter offenses into local businesses.

If anyone has information that police should be aware of they are asked to notify the Provost RCMP or CrimeStoppers.
