The Lion’s Youth Campground was the victim of a theft of tools, equipment, and a small amount of cash on Monday, adding to the list of recent thefts in the area. 

Lion’s Youth Campground spokesperson Kat Mundorf said they discovered maintenance tools, a fridge, a small amount of cash stolen from sea cans on the property on Tuesday morning. This came after it was discovered that on Sunday night someone had cut the locks to the campground but had not stolen anything, potentially returning to the site on Monday evening to commit the crime. 

“It took us three years to build up that tool pile,” said Mundorf, adding that maintenance on the site will be affected this summer. 

A potential fundraiser is being planned to replace the tools.

The RCMP Major Crimes Unit have arrested and charged a youth in the ongoing investigation of a murder south of Morrin last fall, RCMP announced Wednesday.

A 16-year-old female has been charged and arrested in relation to the October 16, 2017 murder of Fazal Rehman, south of Morrin.

On June 5 she was arrested and charged with accessory after the fact of murder and attempted obstruction of justice. The female, who cannot be named under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, appeared in provincial court in Calgary on Wednesday, June 6.

In the fall of 2017 investigators arrested and charged Dylan Howard, 20, in relation to the murder of Fazal Rehman, 36, whose body was found at the scene of a burning vehicle in a rural area south of Morrin on October 16.

Howard awaits a preliminary hearing on January 18 to February 1, 2019 to determine whether there is sufficient evidence to proceed to trial.

RCMP will not comment further as the case has been put before the courts. Check www.drumhellermail.com for additional information.
