A shockingly large theft of almost $140,000 value has occurred in a pipe yard in Millet, and Wetaskiwin RCMP are investigating.

According to Wetaskiwin RCMP spokesperson Cst. Christine Hepburn, “On July 5, 2018 Wetaskiwin RCMP responded to a report of a break and enter at the pipe yard in Millet. It was reported that sometime in the last month between April 25 and July 6 almost $140,000 worth of pipe had been stolen from the site.
