Rimbey RCMP seek suspects in attempted truck theft

Connection to Red Deer area property crime, police say

Two people tried to steal a truck from a rural property west of Rimbey and now police are asking for help identifying the suspects.

Rimbey RCMP said a male and female suspect tried to steal the truck Monday morning, but were scared off by the home owner.

At about 8 a.m., a home owner saw the two drive onto her yard and attempt to steal her truck. She yelled and the suspects fled. They left in a white Ford F250 crew cab truck that was reported stolen from Sundre on March 30.

Police said the truck is suspected to have been involved in property crime in the Red Deer area.

Police describe the female suspect as a Caucasian in her 20s with a slight build and light brown hair.

The home owner was able to take photographs of the male and the vehicle they drove.

Anyone with information that could help the investigation is asked to contact the Rimbey RCMP at 403-843-2223 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com.
