This week, Rimbey RCMP detachment responded to 48 calls for service. These files included but are not limited to, one break and enter, nine theft related offences, 2 cases of fraud and three false alarms.
This week Rimbey RCMP responded to a panic alarm at a residence in the town of Rimbey. That panic alarm had been manually keyed into the alarm keypad at the residence. Police attended and found no disturbance or other emergency. It turned out that when the homeowner came home and intended to punch in the disarm code for the system they had accidentally typed in the panic alarm code.
Rimbey RCMP responded to a report of a pile of gravel on a roadway and attended to control traffic while awaiting the highways department. Unfortunately, this spill didn’t occur on the road where police received a complaint of a land owner taking gravel from the county road to supplement his driveway. Police followed up with the land owner and reminded them that this was technically a theft and further behavior of this sort could result in charges.
Rimbey RCMP received a report of a stolen license plate this week. The owner had been alerted to the theft when he attended registries to renew his registration on his primary vehicle and learned that there were a number of tickets from the Edmonton area.
Rimbey RCMP executed a search warrant this week at a residence in Ponoka County and recovered a firearm and drugs.
Rimbey RCMP did not arrest anyone with impaired driving this week. One evening, police observed a large number of patrons at the local bar. Frequent patrols and traffic stops with vehicles leaving the bar all showed that patrons who had been drinking had a sober designated driver driving them home. Come morning there were a large number of vehicles left at the bar.
Police commend everyone who is committed to road safety and making our community a safe place.
