Last fall, Drumheller youth Brandon Hall was diagnosed with cancer and has been undergoing treatments since. In April, 2016, several local citizens and businesses organized fund raisers with proceeds going back to the Hall family to assist with their expenses incurred from these treatments. These fund raisers including decal sales, a Poker Run, and a Silent Auction.
On June 14th, 2016, Drumheller RCMP received a complaint that a substantial amount of the Silent Auction cash proceeds were missing and never forwarded to the Hall family. After completing their investigation, RCMP have laid one charge of Theft Under $5000 against 33 year old Ashley Fredrickson of Drumheller. She has been released on a Promise to Appear in Drumheller Provincial Court on Friday, August 26th, 2016.
