Rocky Mountain House investigating robbery

Clearwater County, Alberta – On March 14 the Rocky Mountain House RCMP responded to a complaint of a robbery that occurred on a rural residential property. The RCMP are seeking information about three males who are responsible for assaulting the property owner and fleeing on a stolen ATV.

Shortly before 2:25 a.m., the elderly property owner went outside to check on his truck and came across three masked males in his garage. A confrontation occurred and the property owner was assaulted.

The RCMP were dispatched and information received was that one male fled on the property owner’s ATV while the other two males left in the small four door sedan they arrived in. The RCMP located the ATV, attempted to stop it and the driver fled on foot. RCMP Police Dog Services attended but the male was not located.

The stolen ATV was recovered and returned to the owner.

The injured male was transported to the hospital where he is recovering from his non life-threatening injuries. (Jay – is he still there?)

The RCMP continues to actively investigate this occurrence with the assistance of specialized Units; Forensic Identification Section and General Investigation Section. Persons of interest have been identified by the RCMP who remain committed to solving this crime.

“A call to service like this is a priority for our responding members” says Sergeant Jay Penner of the Rocky Mountain House RCMP. “Whenever there is suspicious activity on your property call 911 and let us handle the incident. In this case, I’m confident that there are people who have information on this incident and I’m asking them to come forward.”

If you have information about this investigation, please call the Rocky Mountain House RCMP at 403-845-2882 or call your local police detachment. If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by SMS.
