Rimbey RCMP on lookout for break and enter suspect

Suspect driving van evades police

This week, Rimbey RCMP Detachment responded to 63 calls for service. These files include but are not limited to; six theft related files, four occurrences involving mischief, one sexual assault and three criminal harassment complaints.

On August 2nd, 2018 a report was received where two horses were dropped off in a pasture near Township Road 414. One horse took off north of the location and one had been corralled. The brand inspector has attended and was unable to determine who the owner of the horse is. If anyone has lost horses in the past couple of weeks, or can assist in identifying the owners please contact the Rimbey RCMP.

On August 6, it was reported that a male had attempted to steal a vehicle from a farm on Range Road 41. Local residents were now following the vehicle which had an ATV in the back of it. Officers attended and attempted to intercept but were unable to safely stop the vehicle and were not able to identify the suspect at this time.

Awhile later officers were dispatched to damage to a fence line located on Range Road 25. The owner advised that a vehicle had run down a gate and three wire fences. This damage was related to the earlier activity involving the tan coloured pickup. The truck travelled south along a tree line, ran through three wire fences and was able to get off the property to the south.

On August 7, the tan pickup that evaded police was found abandoned in a field near the location of a rural break and enter. The suspect broke into a house, stole valuables and keys and stole a different truck. Forensic investigators attended the scene of the B&E and are examining items from the recovered stolen truck. The suspect is described as:

-Caucasian male;

– darker complexion, looked dirty as if he hadn’t “washed in months”;

– about 6 feet tall;

– slim build, approximately 170-180 pounds;

– 30-35 years old;

– pointy nose and darker coloured eyes;

– dark, greasy, unkempt medium length hair;
