Local RCMP dealt with several impaired driving investigations. A 30-yearold resident of Gull Lake was arrested for impaired driving on Highway 20, he was issued a licence suspension and taken to jail, he also had outstanding warrants for theft. Another 30-year-old resident of Blackfalds was issued a 24 hours suspension, he was pulled over for doing over 40 km/h over the speed limit and it was determined he was under the influence of alcohol, which is contrary to court ordered conditions, he was is now facing breach charges. A 60-year-old Ponoka resident got his truck stuck in the Medicine Lake area. He, too, was found to be consuming liquor and issued a 24 hour suspension, his vehicle was also towed.

Rimbey RCMP investigated a handful of domestic violence incidents and laid assault charges against two local men.

Over the past weeks, two holiday trailers parked at a rural location were vandalized causing several thousands of dollars damage, to the point where they were completely destroyed. Evidence has been seized from the scene and the investigation is continuing.

Several thefts of construction related equipment have been reported this past week. Over the weekend unknown culprits stole a truck and construction trailer from a house under construction. The truck is described as a silver 2007 GMC Sierra bearing Alberta Licence plate BDH7393, the trailer is a white Haulmark enclosed trailer with Alberta licence plate W19992. During the same time, 30 sheets of plywood were stolen from a utility trailer parked on 58th Avenue in Rimbey.

In the early morning hours of June 25th, unknown culprit(s) committed a deplorable crime. The thief broke into a local funeral home and stole several valuable items. Local RCMP along with the RCMP Forensic Identification Section are investigating.

On June 27th at around supper time, after an argument with another person a 20-year-old resident of Rimbey decided it would be a good idea to show main street his birthday suit. Charges are pending in this case. Also on the same day a local man was arrested for causing a disturbance at a residence in Rimbey. The man was upset that the government issued jewelry did not fit his wrists. Alcohol was likely a factor in both incidents.
