Rimbey RCMP Detachment – weekly crime report

  • Apr. 5, 2010 6:00 p.m.

Submitted

Rimbey RCMP responded to 40 calls for service over the last week. Calls ranged from the usual property damage to reports of stolen vehicles.

A 21-year-old woman, a resident of Calgary, didn’t seem to learn the lesson from an impaired charge this past fall as she was picked up once again for driving while impaired.

Rimbey, Breton, and Drayton Valley RCMP were dispatched to a complaint of an erratic driver forcing vehicles off the road north bound on Highway 22. Members caught up to the driver as she was attempting to change a tire that was damaged by her impeccable driving. The driver showed numerous signs of impairment and was arrested for drinking and driving. The woman, who was an un-licensed driver, later provided breath samples over three times the legal limit.

A local man also appears to have a similar learning impairment as he was once again arrested for breaching conditions of his conditional sentence order. A bail hearing was held for a second time in one week for the male who was again released for yet another court appearance.

Take steps to prevent crime

A white and black Kawasaki ATV was stolen from a property near Rimbey this past week. There have been an increasing number of vehicle thefts so residents are warned to take extra precautionary steps to prevent these types of thefts. Criminals prey on the trusting public who don’t think this type of thing will occur to them. Please be sure to always lock your vehicle and never leave the keys in the vehicle or readily available.

Man charged with assaults

Police arrested Troy Netterfield, 33, a resident of the Gimlet area, for assault causing bodily harm and other serious incidents. Netterfield faces nine criminal counts of various assaults and mischief charges and is in custody awaiting court in relation to these matters.

April is Speed Month

For all those lead-footed drivers, it may be an idea to start a collection for the impending speeding ticket you will receive. Speed plays a major role in the number of collisions and fatalities that occur on our highways every year. RCMP will be out and about conducting speed enforcement all month so drivers are warned to slow down for the sake of their bank account and more importantly the other users of the highway.

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

Crime Stoppers is a community program that does work. Do your part and call now.
