A pricey piece of safety equipment has been stolen.
 
An electronic radar speed sign by 46th Street and 52nd Avenue in Redwater was stolen over the Family Day long weekend.
 
"Some individuals came, sawed the post off and took everything," said Redwater mayor Mel Smith. "We were just trying to get people to slow down to less than 50 km/h and make them aware that there is a speed zone in place."
 
The estimated cost of an electronic radar speed sign is around $3800.
 
"The department of transport did have flashing (signs) on some of the highways and they've had a couple of signs go missing over the year," added Smith.
 
Anyone with any information regarding this theft is asked to call the Redwater RCMP at 780-942-3607.
