In the last week Rimbey RCMP responded to 40 calls for service. These calls include but are not limited to: seven suspicious vehicle or person reports; six break and enter files; three reports of theft; and one fraud related complaint.
On January 1, Rimbey started the new year off on an exciting note, working with multiple units including Crime Reduction Units, Drug Units, Edmonton Police, and Police Dog Services in apprehending a male wanted for drug charges, theft of vehicles, and breaching conditions. After evading police in Edmonton, Stony Plain, and Sherwood Park the suspect lost his will to run and was found by members of the Rimbey RCMP hiding in a wooded area just north of Rimbey.
During the night of January 10th, 2019, Rimbey RCMP responded to five separate break and enter offences. Information gathered from the scenes indicate that the same suspects are responsible for all five events. Two male suspects, one wearing orange coveralls and a white mask, the other wearing all black, were seen on camera. The suspects are associated with a black Ford pick-up truck. The suspects stole a flat-deck trailer belonging to Nikirk Construction. The trailer is unique in that it is homebuilt with the company name cut into the metal and has an aluminium windbreaker on the front. If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of the trailer or anyone responsible, please contact the Rimbey RCMP.
The town of Rimbey should be on the lookout for a pair of lions on the loose – statues, that is. On January 11, RCMP received a report that two lion statues were taken from a local residence. Each statue is approximately two and a half feet tall and white in color. RCMP would like to get these wild creatures off the street and back to their home, so any information regarding their whereabouts would be appreciated.
If you have information regarding these or any other crimes, please contact the local Rimbey RCMP Detachment at 403-843-2224 or Crime Stoppers:
