RCMP are hunting for a couple of fire extinguisher thieves who have been selling their stolen merchandise.
Const. Sabrina Grunow of city RCMP said on Thursday that in the last several days, businesses have filed complaints to police that two unknown males have sold or attempted to sell them fire extinguishers.
The culprits approached staff at the various businesses stating they were delivering previously ordered extinguishers.
The suspects provided staff with a company name and then produced the extinguishers along with an invoice for payment.
The staff, in some instances, paid the invoice and the suspects departed, Grunow said.
Police investigation revealed the extinguishers were stolen from other businesses in the area.
Police only have a vague description of the suspects.
One has brown hair and wore a red hat and red sweater.
The second one was scruffy looking and wore a winter hat and winter coat.
Anyone who may have information or has been bilked by the suspects is asked to contact police at 403-343-5575 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
