In the last week, Rimbey RCMP responded to 74 calls for service. These files include, but are not limited to: one aggravated assault file, five break and enter occurrences, three thefts of vehicles, three impaired operation investigations, one assault occurrence, and eight suspicious activity complaints.

While on patrol on July 2nd, 2020 at approximately 1:30 a.m. officers conducted a traffic stop. When the driver was asked if he had anything to drink he replied last night, which the officer believed that last night meant before midnight. The male driver provided a sample into the ASD and produced a fail result in the instrument, he was then arrested and brought back to the detachment. Breath samples taken at the detachment were nearly three times over the legal limit and as a result the driver has been charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle, and operation of a motor vehicle over the legal limit and is to appear in Rimbey court on September 2nd, 2020.

Sometime in the night on June 30th 2020 a holiday trailer was stolen from 50th avenue in Rimbey. The owner had the trailer for sale and noticed it was missing the following day. A white and black 2015 Carbon toy hauler trailer was stolen and has not been recovered.

Our office has been advised and would like to notify the public in advance that there will be Telus technicians going door to door in Rimbey throughout the summer. They will be hanging notices on doors and should be displaying/wearing Telus ID and Telus marked clothing.
