Merry Christmas from Rimbey RCMP: Sgt. Mark Groves

Rimbey RCMP investigated over 45 files. Highlights of the week include impaired driving, uttering threats to kill, assaults, criminal harassment, break and enter and other criminal matters.

For those on the “naughty” list…

Mounties continue to round up persons on the “Wanted” list. Several folks have been arrested and put behind bars recently who were out and about trying to avoid being captured by the law. If you are on the run and are tired of looking over your shoulder, you can just drop by the detachment anytime. We will be glad to ease your guilty conscience.

Farm theft

Thieves helped themselves to a John Deere riding lawn mower from a farm site near Highway 20 north of Hoadley. The criminals also broke into the residence at the time of the incident. Officers are continuing to investigate the matter and are following up on all leads at this time.

Check Stops planned

Police will be targeting impaired drivers this week. Check Stops will be conducted at various hours of day and night. Officers will be looking for any drivers whose nose resembles Rudolph’s.

Report a poacher

More and more poaching complaints are being reported. Several deer have been shot and left in the Leedale area. In many cases, the animals were shot at night using the moonlight and/or spotlights. Other cases are being reported in the Medicine Lake Road area west of town. If you witness such a crime such, please report it immediately.

SRO in provincial court

Police have solved more and more crimes this last month causing a huge backlog of cases in the court system. Last Friday’s courtroom was filled to the point of standing room only for several hours. If you plan on taking in some court action, you better arrive early from now on to save a seat.

Plan your Valentine’s date night

If it’s been awhile since you were out on a “date night”, plan ahead and check off the evening of Feb 9. Rimbey Victim Services Unit is hosting a “black tie” type affair at the Rimbey Community Centre. There will be a 17-piece band, a fully catered splendid meal and much fun and laughter. For more information on this spectacular gala, please call (403) 843-6786 or (403) 843-8494. Tickets are on sale now and going fast.

Merry Christmas from the Mounties

The Rimbey RCMP detachment wishes everyone a blessed holiday season. A special thank you to all the kind and generous people who dropped by our office with fresh baked cookies and Christmas cakes. They were delicious. We would also like to thank all the thoughtful folks throughout the three counties we patrol for the coffee and goodies offered to us while we were out patrolling their neighborhood this past year. It is our honor to serve you all. Merry Christmas!

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.
