In the last week, Rimbey RCMP responded to 38 calls for service.

On April 23rd, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. officers responded to a dispatch of an erratic driver. The suspect vehicle was located and a traffic stop initiated. The female occupant was arrested on one outstanding warrant from Red Deer. She was held for a JIR hearing and was subsequently released with conditions. The male driver was arrested on 13 outstanding warrants from Edmonton, Red Deer, and Blackfalds with 35 total charges. The male also provided the arresting officer a fake name resulting in new charges of personation with intent to avoid arrest, and obstructing a peace officer. He was also charged with failing to comply with release order, possession of a weapon while prohibited, and operation of a motor vehicle while prohibited. The male has been remanded in custody and is to appear in Red Deer court on May 14th.

Spring tips

  • As we welcome spring, the RCMP kindly reminds Albertans to stay home whenever possible. Please take advantage of the beautiful weather to spend time on your decks or balconies, explore gardening and engage in spring cleaning.
  • Spring is also a great time for home and business owners to follow the three “L” principles of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED); locks, lighting and landscaping. Tips include:
  • Installing a gate or fence around your property to help make it obvious when someone enters in an inappropriate spot;
  • Planting prickly plants, like raspberries or roses, to deter criminals from entering through those areas.

Relationship violence and intimate partner violence

  • The RCMP is aware the COVID-19 pandemic may be especially difficult for those experiencing intimate partner violence.
  • The RCMP wants victims/survivors to know it’s not their fault, and they are not alone. First responders are here to keep you safe 24/7, even during the pandemic. If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call 9-1-1 or your local police.
  • There are many resources that can assist victims/survivors with safety planning. Whether or not victims/survivors decide to report the violence to police, they can reach out to local victim services, shelters, cultural and community health centres, Indigenous friendship centres and other community centers for support.
  • Those who think someone they know might be a victim/survivor should reach out to them and let them know they can be trusted, and encourage them to seek support and identify their support network.

If you have information on this or any other crime, contact your local RCMP Detachment at 403-843-2224 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Crime Stoppers can also be contacted online at www.P3tips.com, or you can download the P3 Tips app for Android or Apple on your smart phone. You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers. If you provide information to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash award.
