TISDALE — The Tisdale RCMP is asking for the public’s assistance after a family’s trampoline was stolen.
The theft occurred between 4:30 am and 5 am on May 1 from a residential backyard on 96th Street.
The homeowner found drag marks in the snow and a single set of footprints that left the backyard and ended in the back alley.
The trampoline has been described as 12 feet in diameter, with blue bumper pads zip tied to the metal frame, and a replaced bouncing surface.
Cpl. Mike Benjamin from the Tisdale detachment said the theft was “unusual”.
“I’ve never heard of one happening before,” Benjamin said. “That doesn’t mean that hasn’t happened before. Obviously they wanted the trampoline.”
Anyone with any information is encouraged to contact them at 306-878-3810 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
“The theft of a trampoline if no different from the theft of a credit card, theft of a vehicle or theft of any personal belonging. It’s important to that family and they deserve to enjoy the benefits of what it provided for them.”
From April 24 to May 8 the Tisdale detachment received 74 calls for service. These included four assaults, one missing person who was located and five complaints of fraud.
