As you approach Ag in Motion on Highway 16 West, a tent city comes into view, as if sprouted from the soil, the peaks of its pure white canopies pointing the way.
In one of those tents, on 5th Street just north of Saskatchewan Drive, speaker Jolene Brown holds forth on succession planning. She’s dynamic and funny. A succession planning expert, ‘Farmer Brown’ lives in the middle of corn and soybean country in Iowa, and has spoken all over North America and around the world.
On Wednesday July 26th 2017, at approximately 2:00 am the Warman/Martensville RCMP received a call from a vigilant citizen in Warman reporting three males looking into and entering unlocked vehicles. Officers responded and were able to locate and arrest three youth in relation to the matter. The youth were found to have entered and stolen from numerous unlocked vehicles in the City. The matter continues to be under investigation.
The Warman/Martensville RCMP would like to thank members of the public for making the observation and promptly calling it in.
The RCMP would also like to remind the public of the following, which are common themes when it comes to break-ins to vehicles and theft of vehicles. In the case of vehicle thefts, they are almost always left unlocked, with the keys accessible somewhere in the vehicle. Prevention of these types of crimes is simple:
Lock your doors
Remove your keys
Remove valuables from your vehicles and don’t have them visible
Park your car in a well-lit area
Call the police immediately if you see suspicious activity
