Man caught breaking into cars, brandishes screwdriver

A Red Deer apartment manager was threatened by a man brandishing a screwdriver after he and a female were caught breaking into vehicles.

A Red Deer apartment manager was threatened by a man brandishing a screwdriver after he and a female were caught breaking into vehicles.

Red Deer City RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the two individuals they say are responsible for the thefts. Police have released a sketch of the man and a video camera photo of the woman.

Police said on Feb. 5 at 6 a.m., a female broke into the apartment building at 4902 37th St. She proceeded to the parkade, where she met a male in who was driving a purple Oldsmobile Aurora.

The pair allegedly drove to the bottom level of the parkade, where they broke into two vehicles and took identification and money, before being discovered by building management.

The male had a long screwdriver and warned the building manager not to come any closer as he retreated to his vehicle and drove away, picking up the female along the way.

Anyone with information about this crime or who may know the identity of those involved is asked to contact Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575 or Central Alberta Crime Stoppers at 1-800-22-8477.
