       Around 3 a.m. on Tuesday, April 19 the lobby ATM at the Delia Mountain View Credit Union was stolen, but was later recovered along with a stolen truck used in the crime.
    Drumheller RCMP say that the ATM was towed out of the bank lobby and dragged away, and later located approximately 1 km outside Delia stuck in a ditch on Range Road 17-4. Also left with the ATM was a red F550 truck that was stolen from Trochu earlier in the morning. 
    Video shows that one male suspect was wearing a black jacket with "Security" written in white on the left chest, with a black nose and mouth covering that is commonly worn by motorcyclists. Video evidence also shows that the suspect was wearing red underwear. 

The suspects were not able to get any money from the ATM.

    “What we can assume is, because our buildings are well monitored with security systems, and the Drumheller RCMP had such a good response time, the current belief is that the sirens being close caused the thieves to just abandon the vehicle and ATM because they didn’t have time to do anything,” said Mountain View Credit Union's VP Operations Brosinksky. “Cudos to the RCMP on their response time.”

It appears the Valley and area’s loss of Internet since shortly after noon today has finally been restored.

The cause of the outage appears to be vehicular damage in Strathmore that has impacted spans feeding out to Drumheller.

A temporary span has been deployed.

The Mail will provide further updates when if there are any changes to the timeframe or situation.

The outage affected Xplornet, Bell, Rogers, Shaw, Axia, netago, Reality Bytes, Aerial Internet Service and all should be restored.

Internet outage causes frustration

Residents throughout the area are dealing with an afternoon without Internet.
    The Mail has learned from John Shoff of Reality Bytes that an accident may have caused one of the main fibre optic lines to be severed between Calgary and Drumheller.
    “Outages are pretty widespread. A fiber team from Calgary is already mobilized,” said Shoff. “Issues started at 12:20p.m. There is no ETA yet repairs but my guess is it will be several hours.”
    Reality Bytes has all of their technicians standing by ready to ensure their internet network is up as soon as their service is restored.
 Netago posted on its Twitter feed that there is an Axia outage between Drumheller and Calgary causing an internet blackout for its entire network. Reports are that Xplornet has over 4,000 customers down and Aerial Internet is down. Shaw customers have also been affected.
