Rural RCMP files: Skid steer, Dodge Ram stolen from rural Ponoka property

Thefts at multiple locations include skid steer, Dodge Ram, plus a missing puppy & tattooed suspect

Police are investigating the theft of a pickup from a shed in Ponoka County.

RCMP state that overnight of Sept. 9 unknown suspects cut a padlocked fence and then entered an unlocked shed on a rural property at Range Road 260 and Township Road 442. Individuals stole a skid steer, flat deck trailer, plus a dark blue 1995 Dodge Ram from the shed.

Police say on the pickup was a blue Miller welder in the back, plus had a steel bumper on the front. There are no suspects or witnesses, say police, but investigators are checking video surveillance.

Man caught attempting bike theft

Police are on the lookout for a tattooed Caucasian man who attempted to steel a bike from right inside a garage.

The report came in Sept. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at a rural home on Range Road 260 and Township Road 415.

The resident noticed the activity and approached the suspect who then drove away in a black Ford Escape. The man is described as being bald and skinny with tattoos. He’s said to be about 35 years old and about six feet tall.

No licence plate was obtained. Police made immediate patrols, however, the vehicle was gone on arrival.

Missing puppy

A missing four-month old Border Collie/Rottweiler may be because of suspicious activity on a rural home.

Ponoka RCMP received a complaint of a suspicious vehicle on Sept. 7 at about 4 p.m. at a home on Township Road 424 and Secondary Highway 815. The complainant stated to police they witnessed a newer burgundy or dark red Ford F150 exiting a rural driveway.

At the time the person did not think much of it due to there being numerous residents in the area but realized a short time later that the puppy was missing.

The files are under investigation.
