Outlook 'Jail n Bail' raises thousands for museum

The success of the event in downtown Outlook will see funds go right back into the local museum.

OUTLOOK - On the day dedicated to romance, the success of a local event showed that there was more than just love in the air.

A special Jail n' Bail event hosted at A&E Enterprises in Outlook and organized by the Outlook & District Heritage Museum brought together a ragtag band of criminals, who were being imprisoned for a number of assorted offences. If they wanted out, the answer was very simple - get on the phone and raise your bail money.

Held on February 14, Franklin Street became a hotbed of activity as each prisoner was brought to the jail cell located outside of A&E by Cst. William Hynes of the Outlook RCMP and assorted helpers. From there, they were photographed and jailed before they got on their phones and tried to arrange their bail money.

The list of prisoners included:

Doug Wagner, wanted for "Paving the way to...who knows where?"

Darcy Kendall, wanted for "Unlawful use of a calculator"

Justin Turton, wanted for "Impersonating a young German child to get more candy"

Ryan Husband, wanted for "Saving the world one bike ride at a time"
