In the last week, Rimbey RCMP responded to 51 calls for service. These files include, but are not limited to: six traffic collisions, one assault with a weapon investigation, five break and enter reports, three mental health related calls, five thefts, and nine suspicious activity complaints.
On May 1, 2020 a report of theft from multiple vehicles was received. The victims’ motor homes were parked in Rimbey for storage over the winter and sometime in the previous two days three motor homes had the catalytic converters cut off of them. The cost to replace and repair could be over $3,000 each.
On May 1, 2020 at approximately 7:00 p.m. officers responded to an assault complaint in Lacombe county. A male, female, and child were reportedly assaulted with a dog leash by another female while all were out walking their dogs. Evidently the dogs all started barking at each other and when the lone female’s dog got off leash things escalated quickly. She began hitting the child with her dog’s leash and through the course of the altercation the male and the other female were also struck with the leash. The female has been charged with three counts of assault with a weapon and is to appear in Rimbey court on June 3, 2020.
