Report A Poacher

The deer population is literally taking a beating; hunting season is bad enough but vehicles are killing deer at a rate of three or four a day. Several tips about poaching are being investigated by the RCMP. Please report any suspected poaching activity to the RCMP or to Report A Poacher 1-800-642-3800.

On the naughty list

A naughty boy or girl will be receiving coal in their stocking after stealing Christmas decorations from one of the premier Christmas displays in Rimbey. The person(s) responsible should be ashamed of themselves as their callous act has prompted the victim to take down the rest of his spectacular display. This a real loss for the community.

Drug trafficker arrested

Rimbey RCMP has been conducting an investigation into drug trafficking. Recently two search warrants were executed and a significant quantity of crystal meth and drug trafficking paraphernalia was located. This operation was taking place in a residence with two children under the age of five and across the street from a school.

Crystal Rhine, 30, of Rimbey has been charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, along with several breach related charges. More charges are pending. Rhine is in custody pending a bail hearing at the remand centre.

If you have any information on these or any other crimes, please call the Rimbey RCMP at (403) 843-2224 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, #8477 on Telus Mobility or *8477 on Rogers AT&T.

Crime Stoppers is a community program that does work. Do your part and call now.
