A Thanksgiving tale: want coin, lose turkey

A Thanksgiving turkey once lost, is lost forever; but not a wallet.

A wallet thief-to-be has lost his turkey for the Thanksgiving weekend.

On Oct. 8 at 3:45 pm., an attempted wallet theft was reported in Glen’s Motor Hotel on Highway 16.

The suspect had knowingly placed his bag on the left – behind the wallet, and had proceeded to put the wallet into the bag after adjusting his belongings, according to a surveillance camera video.

As the hotel owner confronted the suspect, the wallet owner had returned and after a heated struggle, had left the premises with the suspect’s bag.

Upon arrest by the RCMP, the suspect indicated that the wallet owner, whose identity could not be identified through the video, had taken his Thanksgiving Day turkey.

“It’s karma,” Sgt. Svend Nielsen said to the man who attempted to steal a wallet but has lost his holiday bird.
