Rimbey RCMP assist break and enter suspect with frostbite, still charged

The man was taken to hospital but was also charged with several crimes

Submitted by Rimbey RCMP

On the morning of March 5, RCMP responded to a break and enter on a rural property.

After taking the suspect into custody and transporting him back to the RCMP detachment, officers quickly learned that the man was suffering from cold feet – and in this case it wasn’t due to nervousness.

Upon further inspection it appeared to be the beginning stages of frostbite.

Apparently the running shoes the man chose to sport that morning were a poor choice in footwear in this cold weather. EMS was promptly called and the suspect was transported to the Rimbey hospital for treatment.

The suspect did get charged with breaking and entering, possessing break-in instruments, and mischief. He is to appear in Rimbey court on May 3.

Other Rimbey RCMP files

March’s first Monday proved to be a busy day for Rimbey RCMP as officers responded to a total of 13 calls for service. Among those calls were three break and enter files, one complaint of harassment, one suspicious vehicle complaint, and one call regarding a suspected impaired driver.

RCMP were also able to recover several stolen vehicles.

Due to the volume of vehicle thefts that occurred that day, RCMP would like to remind everyone to avoid leaving your keys in your vehicle while it is unoccupied. This makes your vehicle a very desirable target for a sticky-fingered thief with a tendency to take things that don’t belong to them.

RCMP are often turned to for advice regarding disputes between landlords and tenants. As a general reminder, unless something criminal occurs, such as if threats have been uttered or an assault has occurred, landlord and tenant disputes are a civil matter. Information regarding everything from landlord responsibilities to evictions can be found in the Residential Tenancies Act, available on the Government of Alberta website.

In the last week Rimbey RCMP responded to 40 calls for service. These calls include but are not limited to: one suspicious person or vehicle complaint; six theft related reports; two break and enter files and five reports of assault.

If you have information regarding these or any other crimes, please contact the local RCMP at 403-843-2224 or Crime Stoppers: PHONE 1-800-222-8477, #8477 on Telus Mobility, *8477 on Rogers AT&T or www.tipsubmit.com. Crime Stoppers is a community program that works. Do your part and call now.
