Last week the Rimbey RCMP responded to 36 calls for service, including missing people, suicidal people, breaching of conditions and impaired driving.

A 29-year-old British Columbia man was reported missing upon leaving for home after working in the Rimbey area. It turns out that he was so in love with the Wild Rose province he decided to stay, unfortunately for him, it was because he had been arrested.

Drunk returned to jail

Rimbey RCMP often do pro-active checks of offenders who are at large in the community on conditions. One check this week found a 43-year-old Rimbey resident intoxicated, contrary to his condition to not consume liquor. He was sent back to jail.

Gravel Road Cops get their man

A 20-year-old Red Deer man is facing several charges after fleeing from police. Unfortunately for him he drove onto a gravel road and hit a ditch causing damage to his vehicle. They don’t call us gravel road cops for nothing.

A not-so-bright light

On Sept. 30 a vehicle on Highway 20 was flashing his high beams at oncoming cars for no reason; one of the oncoming cars was a police cruiser that took the flashing as an invitation to pull that vehicle over. Upon stopping the vehicle the driver was found to be impaired. He later provided breath samples of twice the legal limit.

The RCMP hope he was flashing his lights to draw attention to his bad behavior so that he could be stopped, and not just for the sake of being ignorant. A 32-year-old resident of Stony Plain is facing impaired driving charges.

As usual, snow makes roads slippery

The first snowfall of the year had the typical reaction of several vehicles in the ditch. RCMP remind everyone to slow down, as the roads are slippery.

If you have any information on these or any other crimes, please call the Rimbey RCMP at (403) 843-2224 or Crime Stoppers 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.
