Eight grain bags damaged in Pincher Creek rural crime

by

Chances are, if you live in a rural setting, you’ve either impacted by rural crime either directly or indirectly. We have commodities in the bin or on the ground, and where the market is currently sitting, they are likely of high value.

On January 30, Pincher Creek RCMP responded to a complaint of mischief at a rural location a few kilometres east of Pincher Creek, Alta.

Police observed eight grain bags containing barley that were severely damaged by unknown culprits. The damage compromised the quality of the bags causing the barley to be exposed to outdoor elements. Each bag of barley is estimated to be valued at $225,000 — putting the total estimated damages at $1.8 million.
