In the last week, Rimbey RCMP responded to 36 calls for service. These files include, but are not limited to: one theft of truck, three other theft related occurrences, two mischief files, and three traffic collisions.
On July 29th 2020 between 8:00 and 9:00 p.m. a truck was broken into near Gull Lake. The back side window of the vehicle was smashed to gain access and a purse containing a large amount of cash, and cell phones were stolen. Yet another reminder to please ensure that valuables are not left in your vehicle.
On August 2nd, 2020 a traffic stop was conducted and the recorded speed of the vehicle was 175km/h in a 100 km/hr zone. Surprisingly, the vehicle had five occupants and a sixteen year old driver travelling at that extremely high rate of speed. The driver has been charged and is required to appear in Rimbey court on November 11th, 2020.
When selling a vehicle please protect yourself and ensure that you remove the license plate and cancel the registration. If you fail to do so you could be liable for photo radar and other registered owner driving infractions.
