Slave Lake RCMP are looking for help in identifying the person who picked up a dropped wallet in the Slave Lake Walmart store on Dec. 19 and walked off with it.
Police have a rough idea what the woman looks like.
“Video footage shows that soon after it was dropped, a female wearing a red coat, black pants, fur-topped boots and a striped toque picked up the wallet and place it in her pocket.”
The release from Staff Sgt. John Spaans goes on to say the woman “quickly departed the store.”
The owner of the wallet was a woman out doing Christmas shopping and it contained “a large sum of cash” for that purpose.
If you have information about this incident, the RCMP would like to hear from you. They can be reached by telephone at 780-849-4380, or by calling the TIPS line at 1-800-222-8477.
RCMP are also hoping for information that will help them solve a break in and theft at an oilfield site east of Slave Lake. On Dec. 15, someone broke into the site at kilometre 34 on the Old Smith Highway.
“Suspects stole various items, including a weed-eater and hand-held tools,” says the release from Staff Sgt. John Spaans.
Security cameras did catch the vehicle; it’s an older model dark blue Ford pickup truck, with mismatched tires.
