RCMP officers in Killam in east central Alberta tried to stop a suspicious truck early Sunday when the vehicle rammed a police truck.

The officers are looking for public’s assistance to locate the suspicious vehicle.

At about 3:15 a.m., the RCMP received a complaint about suspicious vehicles in Galahad, about 39 kilometres south of Killam.

Patrols were made to locate them and one of the vehicles was located on Township Road 410 and Range Road 125. The RCMP tried to stop the vehicle at a traffic stop but the truck fled.

When the RCMP located the truck again, an effort was made to stop the truck and it rammed the police truck twice.

The RCMP vehicle became inoperable.

The truck is described as Dodge Ram 2500 or 3500, black or dark blue, with lots of chrome on the truck along with “RAM” in chrome on the tailgate with severe front end damage, and some damage to the rear as well.

If you have seen, or do see this truck, contact the Killam RCMP at 780-385-3502. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the “P3 Tips” app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.
