Traffic incidents, suspicious individuals and theft headlined the 58 calls received by Maidstone RCMP between Sunday, March 20, and Saturday March 26.

The RCMP is looking for information after two vehicles were vandalized in an attempt to steal them on March 20 near Lashburn.  A short time after this incident, a report came in that an ATV was stolen from a nearby rural residence. Police continue to search for a White SUV believed to be related to the crime.

Police are also reminding people to be vigilant with their property and assets after a suspicious incident in the Lashburn area. On March 20, a group of people showed up at a rural location and began asking questions regarding security of the residence.  RCMP said in these types of situations, residents should direct the person to leave and contact police immediately.

Last Monday Maidstone RCMP, in cooperation with the North Battleford and Blaine Lake detachments, arrested a man from Big Island Cree Territory who was in possession of a stolen truck.

On Tuesday, police recovered a stolen truck from Lloydminster in a ditch in Alberta, and police responded to a break and enter where some items were taken and vandalism was done.

And on Thursday, a driver was charged with under the Traffic Safety Act after a two-vehicle collision on Highway 16 near Marshall.
