RCMP called to dispute

Dispute results in man brandishing knife

In the last week Rimbey RCMP responded to 32 calls for service. These calls include but are not limited to: one assault with a weapon, two theft related incidents; two hit and run complaints; and in conjunction with the major crimes unit, one murder investigation.

On June 17, RCMP were dispatched to a complaint of a male waving a knife. A dispute had started when a homeowner was not satisfied with a job completed at their home and refused to pay for the work. The contractor then used a utility knife to cut the newly installed insulation out of the walls. RCMP stayed to ensure the safety of everyone involved but in the end both parties were advised the matter was civil. For your protection please always have a contract when hiring or performing work. While RCMP were attending this call one involved party was found to have an outstanding warrant from Red Deer, the male was subsequently arrested and is to appear in Red Deer Court.

At approximately 6:30 p.m. on June 18 a hit and run occurred near 51 street and 54 avenue in Rimbey. A red Dodge was reported to be speeding westbound on 54 avenue and close behind a white Dodge was following at a high rate of speed. The white Dodge then sideswiped the red Dodge and backed up into their passenger door before leaving the scene.

Around the same time, a white truck reportedly went thru a stop sign, spun in circles in a parking lot before going thru the stop sign again and speeding southbound on Highway 20. Officers are requesting if anyone witnessed this incident to contact the Rimbey RCMP Detachment or Crime Stoppers.

If you have information on these or any other crimes, contact your local RCMP Detachment at 403-843-2224 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Crime Stoppers can also be contacted online at www.P3tips.com, or you can download the P3 Tips app for Android or Apple on your smart phone. You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers. If you provide information to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash award.
