ATM theft leaves
SMHA out in the cold
JANET KANTERS
Times Editor

The Grinch stole Christmas from the Strathmore Minor


Hockey Association on Dec. 25.
Determined dancers At about 8:30 a.m. on Christmas day, the association’s ATM
was ripped out of the Strathmore Family Centre. And although
video clearly shows the theft, the thieves got away before po-
lice were notified.
Page 11 According to Kevin Crawford, Strathmore Family Centre
manager, the theft was caught on camera and took about 1.5
hours.
“They broke in the front door, and using chains and a tie-
rope, they pulled the ATM out of the building,” he said. “There
was a lot of evidence left at the scene, and police are investi-
gating.” Crawford added the truck used in the theft was stolen
from Calgary.
“I have been manager of the Family Centre for about four
years, and this is the first theft I have had in about 20-plus
Atom tourney years working in recreation,” said Crawford.
What makes the theft even more painful is the fact that the
ATM machine itself is owned and operated by Strathmore Mi-
nor Hockey Association (SMHA). The association’s money is
loaded into the machine, and when users withdraw money,

In an interview with CTV News, Moskal said the association
made anywhere between $7,000 and $10,000 per year from
the ATM machine.
The theft is one of many that has taken place around the
