Red Deer RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance to identify a suspect vehicle involved in multiple vandalism incidents in the Morrisroe and Eastview neighbourhoods.

Between Feb. 12 and 14, Red Deer RCMP received reports of 19 vehicles that had been damaged by suspected pellet gun shots. This is the second series of this type of vandalism. Similar incidents occurred between Nov. 1 and Dec. 26, 2021, where more than 160 vehicles received broken windows and other damage suspected to be a result of a pellet gun. At that time, Red Deer RCMP released information on these incidents to encourage residents to review surveillance footage and contact the police if they had any information.

After this recent occurrence last week, Red Deer RCMP obtained footage of a vehicle believed to be involved in the vandalism. The suspect vehicle is described as a Ford F150 with running boards, a chrome grill, and a truck bed cover.

These incidents took place between midnight and 6 a.m. Residents in the Morrisroe and Eastview neighbourhoods are encouraged to review their surveillance footage to see if a suspect or clearer images of the vehicle can be seen.

If you have information on these incidents or witnessed suspicious activity in your neighbourhood, please contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575 or your local police department. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS)
