Earlier in the year, police recovered a laptop during an investigation into stolen property.

The laptop is believed to have been stolen and police have been unable to determine the owner.

If any person had a laptop stolen or mysteriously go missing earlier this year, please contact Clearwater RCMP, who would love to get the laptop back to its rightful owner.

Any person believing this may be yours, please note you will be asked to describe it, and/or enter a valid password.

Car fire

As reported in last week’s issue, on Oct. 17 police and Clearwater Fire Department were called to a residence in the Wyndhaven neighbourhood. A vehicle had gotten stuck on private property and caught on fire.

The fire department was able to put out the fire before it spread or cause more damage other than to the vehicle itself.

There were no injuries reported and no charges are expected at this time.

Out for a jaunt

On Oct. 18 around midnight, Clearwater RCMP received a report of a young child in red pyjamas walking up Steg’s hill toward Murtle Road. The child appeared to be about eight years old and was alone.

Police responded and located the child, who advised he was out for a walk.

Police walked with the boy to his residence, which was fairly close by. Police spoke with the parents, who were shocked to find their son had sneaked out an unlocked window.
