RCMP seeking Good Samaritan possibly from Rimbey area

Driver may have given ride to Drayton Valley suspect

Drayton Valley RCMP are looking for a good Samaritan who may have given a suspect a lift to Rimbey.

On Thursday at approximately 2:10 p.m., Drayton Valley RCMP responded to the theft of a red 2008 Ford Sport Trac that had been left running while parked outside a local business. The owner observed a Caucasian male, dark hair, short in stature, wearing a hoodie, get into the vehicle and drive off.

Members located the vehicle eastbound on Hwy 22, east of Drayton Valley and attempted a traffic stop. The vehicle turned around and headed back towards Drayton Valley at a high rate of speed. The member was able to observe the driver who matched the description provided by the complainant.

Again, on Thursday, at approximately 5 p.m., a second vehicle, a white 2008 Saturn Outlook, was taken from a garage in Drayton Valley. This vehicle was later recovered in the ditch on Hwy 53 and RR 33, in the Rimbey area.

A passerby reportedly picked up the driver and took him into Rimbey.

Drayton Valley RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance with locating the Good Samaritan that picked up the driver.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Drayton Valley RCMP at 780-542-4457. To remain anonymous, can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or by internet at www.tipsubmit.com.
