Indian Head RCMP says a historic windmill that was believed to be stolen was not stolen at all.
The 41-foot tall, century-old steel windmill went missing from a farm in Vibank sometime between May 16 and 19. After RCMP sent out a request for information regarding this case, the Indian Head detachment received three tips, which helped solve the mystery.
“The missing windmill wasn’t stolen at all. It was the victim of a non-criminal misunderstanding and all parties involved are working toward getting it to its rightful home,” reads a statement from Saskatchewan RCMP on Wednesday.
Tips came in after the request was sent through the Saskatchewan Crime Watch Advisory Network, which allows police to send advisories to residents via a mobile messaging application, text messages, emails or phone calls.
