Rimbey RCMP respond to over 50 calls this week

Charges are pending against habitual offender

This week, Rimbey RCMP Detachment responded to 54 calls for service. These files include but are not limited to; twelve theft related offences, five suspicious person/vehicle calls, and three abandoned vehicle complaints.

Rimbey RCMP members are continuing to conduct compliance checks on habitual offenders to ensure they are abiding by their court imposed conditions.

Charges are pending to one habitual offender who is required to keep a daily curfew and to phone into the Rimbey RCMP Detachment weekly. He has failed to do so and will have to attend court August 3. On July 7 a concerned citizen reported a suspicious male struggling to walk in a straight line along the road. When officers attended it was found that he was breaching his curfew condition. Public involvement by reporting suspicious behaviour can help the RCMP keep tabs on offenders as well.

Rimbey RCMP received numerous calls reporting theft from oil lease sites this past week. This has been an ongoing and increasing issue in our area for some time. If you see any suspicious activity, please don’t hesitate to report it.

If you have any information regarding these or any other crimes, please call the local Rimbey RCMP Detachment at (403) 843-2224 or Crime Stoppers:
