This past week the Rimbey RCMP responded to 43 calls for service. The calls for service included numerous traffic and driving complaints, to fraud and mischief complaints, as well as the unfortunate usual battery of domestic related complaints.

Church attacked again

There has been more mischief to the church on 54 Avenue, Some youths set a small fire in the surrounding trees, fortunately a local citizen went after the fire with his hose and contacted the Rimbey Fire Department who attended and ensured the fire was out. Police ask if anyone has any information about the ongoing mischief to please contact your local detachment. Also please keep an eye out for suspicious activity.

Us exciting as…

Police received a report of a suspicious person who had been sitting in his vehicle for more than three hours on Main Street. Upon attendance it was learned that the male was hired to watch the cement dry. It turns out the only thing suspicious about this complaint is that anybody would actually want this job.

Motorists need to pay attend

Police responded to eight motor vehicle collisions, the majority of these collisions could have been avoided if the drivers had been paying more attention to the road. This may also be a prudent time to remind everyone of the current initiative of seat belt enforcement. Police from all over the province are focusing on seat belt enforcement this month. So “click it or get a ticket.”

Stop for school buses

Police have received multiple complaints of motorists not obeying the stop signs on school buses. If you are guilty of doing this please cease this activity because if police catch you, the fine will be in excess of $400.

Victim Services helps families

Police attended to several domestic disturbances. One such disturbance resulted in several members of a family being displaced. Police and the Rimbey and District Victim Services unit worked together to arrange for the necessities for this family.

If you have any information on these or any other crimes, please call the Rimbey RCMP detachment 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.
