Scouts seeking public's help after breakin

The 2nd North Battleford Scouts are seeking the public’s assistance after their shed was broken into over the long weekend.

They report that thousands of dollars of camping gear was stolen from the shed, located in North Battleford’s industrial area. According to the information provided by their scout leader, it appears that the suspects had cut the lock to the storage shed sometime between Monday May 11 and Tuesday May 12, but didn’t take any items. Efforts were then made by the scouts to resecure the door and even screwed it shut. However, over the May long weekend the thieves tore the door off and stole several items.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact North Battleford RCMP with information.
