Mounties looking for Owner of Coin Collection

Published

1 minute read

Red Deer RCMP are looking for the owner of a coin collection that police recovered in a stolen truck last month. This is not a formal coin collection, as the coins are not catalogued or displayed in cases; it appears to be a collection of loose coins brought back from travels to various countries around the world and likely has as much sentimental value to its owner as it does monetary value. The collection consists of some paper currency and numerous coins.

Red Deer RCMP found the collection in a truck that had been stolen out of Calgary, and subsequently recovered in Red Deer on September 4. For that reason, RCMP cannot determine what community the theft of coins may have occurred in.

If you were the victim of a theft of a collection of currency from around the world, please contact Red Deer RCMP Exhibits staff at 403-406-2574 from Monday to Friday between 8 am and 4 pm. You will be asked to describe a number of pieces from the collection to prove ownership.

Parkland RCMP – GraceLife Church Update 2

Parkland County, Alta. – James Coates remains in custody following charges, a bail hearing in front of a justice, and a court appearance in front of a judge this morning.

On Sunday, Feb. 14, 2021 the RCMP, with AHS, attended the GraceLife Church to assess compliance in relation to conditions issued to the Pastor on Feb. 7. Observations were made that James Coates was not complying with his Undertaking release conditions, and the church was not in compliance with the Public Health Order.

On Feb. 16, James Coates turned himself in to the Parkland Detachment. He was charged in contravention of the Public Health Act (x2), and charged for failing to comply with a condition of his Undertaking, under the Criminal Code. Following a bail hearing before a Justice of the Peace, Coates was to be released on conditions. He remained in custody overnight after refusing to agree to those conditions.

This morning in Stony Plain Provincial Court he continued to refuse to agree with those conditions and a Judge’s Order was issued compelling him to attend court on Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2021.

“We’ve been consistent in our approach of escalated levels of enforcement with Pastor Coates, and we were hopeful to resolve this issue in a different manner” said Inspector Mike Lokken.  “The Pastor’s actions, and the subsequent effects those actions could have on the health and safety of citizens, dictated our response in this situation.”

Major fundraising drive by Bower Place to benefit the Child Advocacy Centre

Bower Place Presents Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre with Donation

The CACAC graciously accepts the 2020 Charity of Choice donation from Bower Place – receiving over $20,000!

The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre was thrilled when Bower Place announced they would be the Charity of Choice for 2020, but the year would look much different than years past. For over 6 years Bower Place has been supporting their community by naming a local charity annually and putting on multiple fundraisers, including: pancake breakfasts, exclusive shopping nights and gift-wrapping. 2020 presented many challenging obstacles to all, but the team at Bower Place took it in stride and began to construct new and innovative ways to fundraise for their chosen charity.

“The ability to “give back” to the community is not only our mission, but QuadReal’s: “We take seriously our responsibility to make a meaningful contribution in the communities we work and live.”  So, we are thrilled that we were able to provide the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre with an outlet to garner funds, especially during such an uncertain and tumultuous year. Also, a special thank you to Jen and all the volunteers who helped make our event and programming initiatives successful!” Adwoa Obrenu-Yamoah, Bower Place Manager, Marketing

Bower Place created the “Inside Story: Pop-Up” for the CACAC

To fundraise this year Bower Place created a special space for the CACAC: the “Inside Story: Pop-Up”. This space not only allowed the CACAC to have fundraising items but allowed them to share their story to all who visited – generating significant awareness in the community of Central Alberta around the issue of child abuse – an invaluable opportunity. Bower Place also partnered with local shops to create two “kits” for sale and held a successful virtual “Girls Night In” craft/fashion event correlated to the sold-out boxes. This was also the first year Bower Place had gone without gift-wrapping, but the team used this as another challenge to create something new, selling “Bower Elves” in the pop-up with 100% of the proceeds donated to the CACAC.

“The entire team at the mall was very supportive and engaged with helping us to highlight the need for our Centre. While they faced many challenges themselves, the focus on helping us remained strong. This organization is rooted in community and plays such a valuable role in our city.” Jennifer O’Shea, CACAC Community Events Coordinator

The CACAC would like to extend a huge thank you to the entire Bower Place team: Adwoa, Sonya, Maia, Ryan & the rest of the team! The ability to work through the ever-changing ways of 2020/2021 is inspiring, and the donation of $20,220 to the Centre truly will have a lasting impact. The CACAC would also like to thank all the volunteers who put in countless hours to help make this year a success – their tremendous commitment to the organization is going to create great change here in our community; the CACAC thanks you for your time, advocacy, and support.
