This past week the Rimbey RCMP responded to 45 calls for service. These calls included numerous collisions, assaults, thefts and impaired driving.

New leads in wire thefts

Copper wire was stolen from two lease sites recently. In addition to previous arrests, police have identified persons of interests and are following up on leads.

Man charged with domestic violence

A 44-year-old resident of Rimbey is facing domestic assault charges. This resident got in an argument with his common law wife and pushed a dresser full of clothes on top of her. The man was released on strict conditions and will appear in court on the next court date.

School of hard knocks

An upset parent phoned 911 to complain his son had left his coat in the school. During the call the parent threatened to break into the school to retrieve the jacket. This threat constituted a crime, which the parent was issued a warning for.

Mailboxes vandalized

A community mailbox near Hoadley was the subject of a break in. Citizens are encouraged to check their mail frequently so that in the event of a break in, the loss of mail will be limited.

When you thought it couldn’t get worse…

A 38-year-old Rimbey resident, who had just dropped off his step-children, missed the turn at a T-intersection and collided with numerous trees, resulting in his car being written off. The driver attempted to flee the scene. Police found the man and determined he was impaired. He provided samples of his breath that were twice the legal limit. His licence was suspended indefinitely, he has an impending court date, and his insurance will likely be voided due to his impairment (thus leaving him on the hook for the cost of a brand new car).

Follow the rules or else…

Police arrested a 35-year-old Rimbey resident for breaching his probation after he was found to be intoxicated at a lounge. The resident was not to drink or be in a bar as a result of a conviction for domestic violence. Should he be convicted, he faces jail time.

Dog owner attacks car

A 30-year-old Rimbey resident is facing mischief charges. The resident’s dog was killed when it ran on the road in front of a vehicle. When the driver went to inform the dog’s owner what had happened the owner started to hit the vehicle causing damages.

If you have any information on these or any other crimes, please call the Rimbey RCMP at (403) 843-2224 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, #8477 on Telus Mobility or *8477 on Rogers AT&T
