Security at the other construction sites have been increased to prevent further thefts, and Gimli police have dispatched Cadet patrols in the Point Douglas area to assist in keeping the peace. 

Hero Cop Solves Case

The mystery behind the murder of 27 year old April Sanderson came to a surprising close. April Sanderson was found dead in her house on April 25th, a victim of multiple stab wounds. There was no sign of forced entry, but evidence of a struggle.  Constable Jack O'Sullivan, acting on "a hunch" acquired a warrant to search the backyard of neighbor Carl Vane, 45. Buried in the garden was the murder weapon, a bloody kitchen knife. The prints on the knife matched to Carl Vane, and the blood matched to April Sanderson.

"I noticed that he had dug up his garden, and it stood to reason that April might have welcomed in her neighbor." said Constable Jack O'Sullivan.  "I had a hunch, and it paid off."

Carl Vane has been taken into custody and has made a full confession to authorities.
