Females caught shoplifting

Rimbey RCMP busy over holidays

In the last week, Rimbey RCMP responded to 36 calls for service. These files include, but are not limited to: three thefts of vehicles; four break and enter reports; four incidents of recovered stolen vehicles; and two shoplifting complaints.

On December 26, two females were caught by staff shoplifting from a store, the staff phoned the RCMP and also confronted them when they tried to leave. The stolen items were returned to the store. When officers attended the location they saw one female being escorted out of the store. The officers then witnessed the same female enter another business and the female could be seen taking items from that store, but when she noticed the police vehicle outside the stolen items were put back and she left the store. The female then continued into a nearby liquor store, another officer witnessed her enter the store and then she was seen running out of the location. The owner of the store advised that the female had taken two bottles earlier in the day and when she came in again they had recognized her. The female was arrested nearby along with another female who had outstanding warrants. One female has been charged with theft under $5000 and is to appear in Rimbey court on March 6, 2020.

On December 29, a quad and trailer were stolen from a hotel parking lot. The trailer was chained to the truck for the night and when the owner went out in the morning it was discovered stolen. A blue Oasis flat bed trailer and black Oasis quad were taken and have not been recovered to date.
