Rimbey RCMP need help identifying suspects who broke into Red Apple

Police think suspects may be local

Rimbey, Alberta – The RCMP have photos of two males who are believed to be connected to a break, enter and theft from the Red Apple store in Rimbey on November 23.

The RCMP responded to the complaint at 6:00 a.m. on November 23, and it was determined that the break-in occurred at approximately 2:55 a.m. The front window of the store was smashed, and two culprits, who both appear to be male, gained entry. Damage was done within the store and some items were taken, including a large amount of BIC lighters.

The suspects were seen on video to be running east on 50 Avenue. There is no indication that a vehicle was involved. The RCMP believe that the two subjects may be local to Rimbey.

The Rimbey RCMP are asking that anyone who can identify these subjects contact the detachment at 403-843-2224. 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.”
