The headdress of a Piikani Nation princess was stolen from her home on Thursday.
Piikani Nation RCMP are investigating a break-in some time between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Thursday at a home on 15th Avenue in Brocket.
Const. Dean Perrin said in a news release the family left home for school and work in the morning and forgot to lock the door.
When family members returned home about 4 p.m. Thursday they realized someone had been inside the house.
“A small amount of loose change had been taken from a tin left on the table,” Perrin said. “Also stolen was a very unique headdress that belonged to their daughter.”
The headdress is part of the Piikani junior princess’s regalia.
Anyone with information about the break-in and theft is asked to call Piikani Nation RCMP at 403-965-2001 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
