Rimbey RCMP report


  • Aug. 23, 2011 12:00 p.m.

Last week the Rimbey RCMP responded to more than 34 calls for service including investigations related to impaired driving, domestic assaults, acts of mischief, thefts, tanker truck roll over and a camper fire.

Drinking and driving charges

The weekend brought about unfortunate drinking and driving related investigations. A 34-year-old Rimbey woman was issued a 24-hour suspension. A 42-year-old Rimbey woman is facing impaired driving charges after providing breath samples over twice the legal limit. A 20-year-old man from Three Hills was issued a graduated drivers licence (GDL) suspension after he was found to have had a few beers prior to getting behind the wheel. All GDL drivers have a zero alcohol condition on their driver’s licence. If caught with any liquor in their system while driving, a GDL driver receives an automatic 30-day driving suspension.

Vandals on bikes

RCMP were also tasked with investigating reports of dirt bikes intentionally causing damage to neighboring lawns, and the theft of solar lights. Although these acts may seem petty, they still constitute a crime and are punishable by a variety of methods — all resulting in a criminal record.

Secure your loads

The RCMP has been receiving a growing number of complaints with regards to people taking unsecured loads to the dump. If your load isn’t secure and items are or could be falling out of your truck or trailer, you could be fined $345.

If you have any information on these or any other crimes, please call the Rimbey RCMP 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.
