The Dollar Store on Yankee Valley Boulevard became the scene of a break and enter and theft Sunday (Aug 25) night between 9:00 and 10:00 pm.
Constable Jason Curtis says an employee responded when the alarm system was activated, the employee then phoned RCMP.
Luckily, not much was taken.
"The only thing that appears to be taken is silly string, so, someone wanted silly string... somebody pried open the front door and went directly to the silly string aisle and took silly string and then departed. Silly string containers were found outside the building, and those were collected to be analyzed by our forensic investigation service."
Constable Curtis says in the interests of fully investigating the crime the containers are being looked at closely.
"The cans are metallic so the grease on your fingers will leave a imprint of the ridges and valleys on your fingertips. So there is the potential, you would always be surprised some of the things that you will get fingerprints off and some that you wont. To make sure we are investigating it fully we did seize those items."
He says although there was no CCTV in the store, nearby stores are providing what they captured that night with RCMP.
Anyone with information is asked to call Airdrie RCMP at 403-945-7267 or crimestoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
