RCMP in Cochrane are on the hunt for an individual suspected of breaking into the Edge School for Athletes on the morning of June 6.
Cst. Jennifer Brewer with the Cochrane detachment said that law enforcement is “actively looking for the suspect” and “seeking assistance from the public.”
According to a press release, an individual gained access to the private school in Springbank through a window and was inside for several hours. The suspect stole multiple items before leaving the location just before 6 a.m., as observed by a staff member who was arriving at the time.
At this time, RCMP are still working to determine the nature of the stolen items. The press release describes the suspect as a young man, who is thin but fit and drives a tan or beige Jeep.
It is clear to law enforcement that the individual had knowledge of the building and had been there before. According to Brewer, this could include a current or past student or an individual who has been to the Edge School for an after-school program and was familiar with the facility.
