Attempted Arson Ice Cream Barn and Suspicious Vehicles

August 12, 2017

Suspicious Vehicles Aug 10 2017.

North of DeBolt on Aug the 9th in the area of TWP 735 and RR 15 at approximately 11:45 pm an old Dodge 4 X 4, licence # BXS 4447, stickers in the back window and one headlight and one taillight out was spotted on private property. When the landowner approached he was met with aggressive behaviour and the vehicle took off.

Also on Aug. 09 a pickup was spotted in various driveways for the second day in a row in the area of RR 71 and HWY 43. This vehicle always seems to be parked in the best spots to watch a number of residents at the same time. Vehicle description is not available as of yet. Both of these incidents have been reported to the R.C.M.P. Please watch and report suspicious activities in these and all areas. Thank you.

Sometime between 12:30 and 2:00 AM on Thursday Aug. 10, 2017 a suspect or suspects spread gas around an extensive area at the Sexsmith Ice Cream Barn and ignited it. A passerby spotted the fire and notified the fire dept. They arrived quickly, extinguished the blaze and a piece of the board walkway was all that was lost. Anyone who might have passed by just before this and saw any suspicious persons or vehicles around this facility are asked to pass on the information to the R.C.M.P. Thank you for always being vigilant.
