This week, Rimbey RCMP Detachment responded to over 50 calls for service including a break and enter, assault, sex assault, sudden deaths, drug busts and other serious matters.

Suspects flee on foot

On Thursday, April 30, at approximately 4:50 in the afternoon, an alert Mountie was patrolling Main Street and observed a suspicious Nissan Pathfinder at a local gas station. When the officer pulled into the parking lot to check the vehicle’s license plate, an adult male ran from the vehicle towards the back alleyway. The officer activated his emergency lights and checked on the driver and passenger in the SUV parked in the lot while other officers were dispatched to the area to search for the man who fled on foot.

Females wanted on outstanding warrants

During the investigation, it was found that the two females in the vehicle were both wanted on outstanding warrants and are well known to police. Police searched the vehicle and seized cocaine, meth and other illicit drugs as well as a sawed off shotgun and pepper spray! Mounties tracked down the male offender, a 29-year-old resident of Rimbey, a short time after he had run from the parking lot. The man was also wanted for 10 warrants that were outstanding for his arrest. In addition, the male was already out on bail awaiting trial for his involvement in a break and enter of a residence that occurred a year ago in the Rimbey area. The two females, one 22 and the other 23 years old, both residents of Red Deer, were held in custody and now face 16 charges each! The vehicle was seized and impounded by police.

Vehicle theft

Sometime between April 25 and April 27, unknown culprit(s) stole a Cherokee holiday trailer from an acreage near Rimbey located at the intersection of Highway 771 and Parkland Beach Road. The 2005 bumper pull trailer is 28′ long, white in colour, aluminum siding and has a slide out on the driver’s side. The trailer had Alberta license plate # V51200 on it when it was stolen.

Domestic dispute

Last Sunday evening, police immediately responded to a disturbing domestic dispute in town. Prior to police arriving on scene, a 29-year-old man, a resident of Rimbey, had fled from the residence after he had allegedly assaulted his common law spouse. Police later located the accused and charged him with assault with a weapon, forcible confinement and other serious charges. The man was reportedly high on illicit drugs when the incident occurred. Children and Family Services have been contacted by police and will be following up with the family as children are involved.

Teenager says people in jail are mean

Last week, Rimbey detachment members were alerted by a local business that a young lady was in their store trying to activate a cell phone that had been reported stolen. Police located the culprit, who was a 17-year-old girl and very well known by the detachment staff. She was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property and for breaching her probation conditions from previous crimes she had been convicted of. The young lady was incarcerated immediately for her indiscretions. Police later received a phone call from the jailhouse and it was the accused inquiring if police can have her moved to a different jail. When asked why she stated, “the people in jail are mean!” Imagine that. Jail isn’t nice… nor are the people in it. So, if you are considering a life of crime, you may wish to make alternative plans… like stay in school, get a job, etc. Evidently, your roommate in the “big house” may not be NICE.

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