Rimbey RCMP had another busy week investigating over 40 files. Highlights of the week included domestic disputes, suicidal persons, vandalism, uttering threats to kill, assaults, criminal harassment, drugs and other criminal matters.

Last week, Mounties in Rimbey were hot on the trail of a suspect responsible for vandalizing several businesses and the High School over the last two weeks. There was also a theft reported in a separate incident from another business that occurred during business hours where the suspect matched the description of the culprit police were seeking. Officers quickly followed up on leads and after examining the facts of each case, made an arrest.

A 15-year-old male, a resident of the Rimbey area, was taken into custody after he was located at a flop house in town. What is disturbing about this case is that he had methamphetamine in his possession when he was arrested. The accused is charged with six counts of mischief to property under $5000 and possession of methamphetamine and will appear in Rimbey court on November 2.

In continued efforts to be a presence out in the rural areas, a member was conducting highway patrols in the early morning hours on Highway 607 north of Rimbey. An unsuspecting lady driving her new Ford F150 was observed driving at a high rate of speed while enjoying the sunrise on the horizon. What caught the officer’s eye was not how fast she was going, but how she looked when she saw the police car. Her deer in the headlights look was funny enough, but the skid marks she left on the highway when she panicked and stood on her brakes was equally priceless.

Fortunately for her, the officer was very fair and in lieu of the cost of new tires and the laundry bill, she was given a break on the ticket.

Police assisted in the investigation of another house fire. In this case, it is believed that the fire was caused by issues with the fireplace.

The fire occurred in the middle of the night while the homeowner was sleeping. Thankfully, the smoke woke him in enough time for him and his dog to escape the inferno without severe injuries.

Please take the time to inspect your fireplace and the chimney to ensure all is well.

Halloween came early for one Rimbey resident who observed a ghost driving a Toyota eastbound on 54 Avenue during the middle of the day. It became more of a concern when the car smacked into a parked van.

When the investigating officer attended the scene, it became evident that there was no invisible man driving the car… the car’s owner had forgot to put it in gear and had not used the emergency brake. A strong gust of wind was enough to get the car started down the slight grade of the road until it abruptly met the van.
