Rimbey RCMP charge woman with dangerous driving

Man charged with assault

In the last week the Rimbey RCMP Detachment responded to 44 calls for service. These calls include but are not limited to: four reports of assault; one suspicious vehicle file; one stolen vehicle file; and five theft related complaints.

A Rimbey female was charged with dangerous driving on February 20 after rear-ending a vehicle on Highway 20. Though there were no major injuries, the incident resulted in damages to several vehicles including a tanker truck, which swerved across the highway in attempt to avoid oncoming vehicles and drove through a nearby field. Thankfully no one was hurt and the matter was quickly resolved. The Rimbey RCMP wish to thank EMS, the Ponoka County Fire Department, and Alberta Highways for their quick responses in tending to those involved, re-routing traffic, and re-opening the highway as quickly as possible, all the while ensuring the safety of everyone involved.

On the evening of February 27, Rimbey RCMP responded to an assault complaint. Upon investigation, police found enough evidence to arrest a male from Rimbey with assault and uttering threats. The male is scheduled to appear in Rimbey court on April 5, 2019.

The last few weeks have certainly been a busy time for traffic services, as more than 20 tickets have been issued in the Rimbey area by Integrated Traffic Services to drivers who feel the need for speed. Though speeding is dangerous at the best of times, road conditions during this time of year make speeding especially risky. RCMP wants to remind drivers to slow down and take their time so everyone on the road can make it safely to their destinations.

If you have information regarding these or any other crimes, please contact the local RCMP Detachment at 403-843-2224 or contact Crime Stoppers:
