The Review requested information just after the theft occurred but was told by RCMP a report could impede the investigation. Evans declined to comment if RCMP had identified a suspect in the theft.

“We are investigating a report of a theft of money from the fire hall,” Evans said.

“We’re well into the investigation. The investigation is progressing and it’s moving in a positive direction.”
