The Rimbey RCMP Detachment received 50 calls for service during the last week. Members responded to complaints of theft, break and enter, and every other offence where alcohol is a factor. Member have stepped up traffic enforcement and numerous violations have been issued for speeding and seatbelts. We are noticing that a large number of people are unable to provide proper and up to date documentation when stopped for traffic violations. The vehicle registration, insurance, and driver license are all required on demand by a peace officer. Failing to provide these can result in a violation ticket for each.

We would also like to advise all vehicle owners to please remove your keys from your vehicles when parked at your residence. You would not leave $30,000 in cash sitting on your front lawn so don’t leave your keys in the ignition or in the car. In the last month and a half all vehicles that have been stolen the keys have been left in the ignition.

Criminals are targeting rural residences where people do normally leave their keys. So please save yourself, us, and the insurance company some grief and remove your keys.
