Rimbey RCMP searched for the man after a Christmas Eve party

Submitted by Rimbey RCMP

In the early morning hours of Dec. 24th, RCMP received a call regarding a missing person.

A Rimbey man in his early 20s reportedly left a house party and had not made contact with anyone since.

The caller was concerned that the man, having left the party intoxicated, may not have been aware of his location or of a safe route home. Thankfully he was located unharmed later that same day,

Semi driver forced to slam on brakes

On Dec. 20th the Rimbey RCMP were informed of a traffic complaint involving an SUV and a semi truck.

The complainant witnessed the SUV driving erratically and saw the driver attempt to pass a semi-truck on a hill in an area with a double solid line, forcing the semi to abruptly brake to avoid a collision. The complainant, rather shocked at this behaviour, informed police and asked that the driver be warned about dangerous driving.

If you witness a dangerous driver, please call the local RCMP Detachment with as much information as you can safely get, including make and model of the vehicle, the license plate, and the location and direction of travel.

Rimbey RCMP and Rimbey Victim Services would like to wish everyone a happy (and safe!) New Years and all the best in 2019.

In the last week Rimbey RCMP responded to 42 calls for service. These calls include but are not limited to: two suspicious vehicle reports; three break and enter files; and two reports of theft.

If you have information regarding these or any other crimes, please call the local RCMP Detachment or Crime Stoppers:
