This week, Rimbey RCMP detachment responded to 48 calls for service. These files included, but are not limited to, five reports of assaults, three break and enters, two theft related offences, and two mental health related occurrences
On June 4 a passerby observed a newer generator at the edge of a machinery road and brought it to the detachment. It was found to have been stolen out of Sylvan Lake detachment’s area. Luckily the owner had provided the serial number to police and the generator has been returned undamaged to the rightful owner.
A break and enter was reported at a commercial building where there was damage to the building, the owner also found small smoldering fires in the building the next morning. A further update was provided that the owner received a very large water bill for the building indicating subjects of complaint had been in the building multiple times over the last month.
Rimbey RCMP received a report of a dangerous driver in a construction zone who nearly hit a worker. While stopped the driver got out of the vehicle and got angry and pushed a supervisor on site. This occurrence is still under investigation. Please be patient and follow posted speed limits in construction zones while crews are working to better our roadways.
