Theft caught on camera

The University of Lethbridge Students' Union was the victim of a brazen break and enter earlier this week as two individuals made their way into the SU lock-up and stole aluminum beer kegs and cases of beer.

Caught on camera at about 5:20 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 3, two individuals are seen removing up to six large, but empty, aluminium beer kegs and three full cases of beer from the lock-up area. The lock to the area was cut with a bolt cutting tool.

One individual is clean-shaven, has dark hair and is wearing dark coloured pants, a green t-shirt and a black baseball cap with a red mark on the brim. The other individual has red hair, a beard and is wearing jeans, a brown t-shirt with a large art logo on it and a black ball cap. The suspects are believed to be driving an older, purple, Chevrolet Lumina.

The beer kegs have no commercial value but could likely be returned for a $30 deposit per container. The three cases of beer are valued at approximately $35 each.

Campus Security and the Lethbridge Regional Police are investigating.

Anyone with information about this activity can call campus security at 403-329-2345, Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (4277) or the Lethbridge Regional Police office at 403-328-4444.
