In the last week, Rimbey RCMP responded to 43 calls for service. These files include, but are not limited to: one theft of truck, one theft from vehicle, six suspicious activity complaints, twelve traffic collisions, and one break and enter report.

On February 5, a traffic stop was conducted in Rimbey. The vehicle was badly damaged and the registration had expired in 2017. The driver of the vehicle could not produce valid insurance and has been charged with 54(1)(a) of the Traffic Safety Act – Drive uninsured motor vehicle on highway. The driver is to appear in court in Rimbey, March 6 and could receive a minimum fine of $2,875.

In the early morning hours of February 10, a truck was broken into while parked at a local hotel. One of the truck’s rear windows was broken and the tonneau cover was pried open causing damage to cover and box of truck. Numerous costly tools were stolen from the vehicle.

Also on the morning of February 10, a trailer was reported abandoned north of Rimbey just off Highway 20. The trailer had been stolen from the Ponoka area and the contents of the trailer, a black ski doo summit 800 and yellow Can Am quad, were not recovered in the trailer at the time. There were items from a truck that had been stolen earlier that morning out of Drayton Valley found scattered around the trailer and they were retrieved by the owner.
