The cold weather this week didn't stop criminals in the valley from going to work on Thursday, January 11.
 
Drumheller RCMP answered a 9-1-1 call from Nacmine just before 10:00 a.m.
 
"We responded to a call of an attempted break and enter to a residence where the home owner saw two people in dark coloured hoodies try to kick in the back door. The home owner screamed and they fled," related Corporal Gerald Sherk. "With some help from an observant neighbor and their home surveillance system, we were able to identify two vehicles associated, and that led to three suspects who are currently in custody."
 
"A 34 year old Drumheller female, a 30 year old Strathmore male and a 38 year old Brooks male are facing charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and attempted break and enter to a residence."
 
While they were able to solve the Nacmine crime, RCMP are still looking for the thieves who broke into Tech Rex on Highway 9 South beside Dairy Queen.
 
"The surveillance system shows them spending quite an amount of time entering the business, but once they were in, they were in the business for less than one minute," reported Sherk. "They hit a watch display that was consignment items that Tech Rex sold for other people, and they got away with thousands of dollars worth of watches."
 
Corporal Sherk can't say if the two crimes are related, but RCMP are looking into it.
