Police received multiple reports of propane tanks being stolen in the City.  There has been several similar thefts reported during this time but police believe there is more that have occurred.  If anyone has video surveillance around their property that had tanks stolen police would like to review it.  The most recent thefts came from the 300 block of Kensington Avenue as well as the 900 block of 5th Street.  If anyone knows anything, saw anything or has any information to assist police they are asked to call EPS or Crime stoppers.  There could be a cash reward for information that leads to an arrest and/or charges.

Police assisted in an escort of a large building being moved out of the City.  Police want to thank our motorists for their patience during this move.

Police received a report of a vehicle that disobeyed red flashing lights and a stop sign of a school bus.  This occurred this afternoon in the Pleasantdale area.  Police do have video evidence of the offence as well as the plate number and description of the driver.  Police will be speaking to the driver in regards to their driving actions.  The driver could face a charge/fine under the Traffic Safety Act.  Police should not have to remind the public that school bus lights and stop arms are there for the safety of our children. The stop sign has lights and writing on both sides of it so applies to vehicles traveling in the opposite direction as well as the same directions.  Police are pleading with motorists to take the extra care and stop for all buses.

Police attended to a disturbance at a city core residence.  The parties residing there were spoken to and warned about the noise disturbing other tenants in the building.
