RCMP nab Rimbey man wanted on outstanding warrant

RCMP nab Rimbey man wanted on outstanding warrant

Man charged with possession of stolen property to appear in Rimbey court July 5

In the last week Rimbey RCMP responded to 54 calls for service. These calls include, but are not limited to, three reports of mischief; three break and enter files; seven suspicious vehicle complaints; and five theft-related incidents.

An adult male from Rimbey with an outstanding warrant was arrested by Rimbey RCMP on the evening of June 3.

Members recognized the Rimbey male as the suspect in a stolen vehicle file stemming from an incident in April 2019 where he and a female were reported for suspicious activity when they were seen abandoning a vehicle in the parking lot of a local business. The vehicle in question had been reported stolen several days prior. Police were unable to locate his whereabouts at the time of the offence but thankfully spotted him while on proactive patrol this past week. He was arrested on an outstanding possession of stolen property charge as well as charged with failing to comply with conditions related to another matter. He will appear in Rimbey court on July 5.

Rimbey officers attended the scene of motor vehicle collision on June 6 in which the driver of a pickup truck attempted to pass a semi-truck while in an area with a double solid line. The semi, which was making left hand turn, blocked the path of the passing pickup. The pickup collided with the semi and became lodged between the wheels of the trailer. Though the pickup truck was damaged beyond repair, neither drivers were injured as a result of the accident. The driver of the pickup has been issued a ticket for passing when it is unsafe to do so.

Rimbey RCMP received a complaint last week regarding grass clippings being blown from freshly mowed lawns onto the roadway. Though the complainant understood there was nothing criminal at play, they wanted to emphasize that grass clippings on the road are very dangerous for motorcycle drivers as it impedes the bike’s grip on the pavement, resulting in serious, and sometimes fatal, accidents. Please be courteous and clean debris off the road as quickly as possible as to avoid creating unnecessary hazards.

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.
