RCMP believe the cutout was unlawfully removed sometime after 3:30 p.m. on Thursday.

“Simply put, it is truly disappointing,” Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey said in a news release. “This initiative was created with the safety of our youth in mind. Whoever is responsible for the theft has put students at risk.”
