This past week the Rimbey RCMP had 39 calls for service. The files included collisions, missing people, impaired driver and warrant executions.

Missing person found

A member of the Rimbey RCMP detachment along with a police dog and handler located a male who had been reported missing from Rocky Mountain House. The missing male has since been reunited with his family.

Residents use lawn as toilet

Rimbey RCMP officers sometimes think of their jobs as being somewhat glamorous. However, once in a while, a file is received that brings them back down to earth. Rimbey RCMP responded to a complaint in town of people using the lawn as a toilet. Evidently, the residents were having issues with their plumbing, and opted to take their “number 1 and number 2 business” outside. A charge under the municipal bylaws is pending.

Mountie on lookout for one more impaired driver

In separate incidents this week a 30 year-old and a 42 year-old male, both residents of Rimbey, are facing driving prohibitions as both males were caught driving over the legal limit. Impaired driving continues to be a concern in our community. If you suspect someone is an impaired driver please contact the RCMP immediately.

One member of the Rimbey RCMP to date has charged 99 people with impaired driving. He is actively looking for number 100. Please don’t give him the satisfaction. Don’t drink and drive.

Former Rimbey resident charged

A 34-year-old male, a former resident of Rimbey, was stopped for a traffic violation, the male pretended to be from Newfoundland and even put on a fake accent to go along with the fake name he provided. Fortunately, the officer dealing with him was from the east coast and made the male for an imposter right away. The male was found to have several outstanding warrants, and now has new criminal charges to boot. He is working on his accent in the Red Deer Remand Centre.

In another incident an intoxicated male thought it would be a good idea to relieve himself in front of the RCMP detachment with two members in the parking lot. He was found to have $3300.00 in outstanding fines. Seeing as how he literally didn’t have a pot to pee in, he was transported to the remand centre to pay off his debt with jail time.

Resident charged with failing to comply

Rimbey RCMP often conduct compliance checks on people in the community who are under court imposed conditions. One of these checks resulted in a 45 year old Rimbey resident being charged with two counts of failing to comply with his probation, stemming from a domestic assault conviction. The male had consumed both alcohol and illegal drugs.
