Bashaw RCMP are hoping that someone will have information on or can identify the four suspects that used a stolen truck for a smash and grab at Bashaw Sports on Dec. 7.
Around 4:30 a.m., the suspects used a stolen blue/grey Chevrolet GMT-400 to ram their way into the store, then proceeded to ransack the locked gun cases inside. It’s estimated about 20 to 25 guns were stolen and loaded into a second pick up, a white four-door Chevrolet, before the suspects fled the area.
Bashaw’s video surveillance system was invaluable in spotting both the suspects and the vehicles.
The GMT-400 pick up was later recovered abandoned near the village of Heisler, about 40 km east of Bashaw.
The four suspects are described as: #1 — wearing a dark jacket with two horizontal red stripes on the chest with a grey hooded sweater under it, blue jeans, work gloves and shoes that were white and brown; #2 — wearing a black jacket over a grey hooded sweatshirt, a dark ball cap with a lighter coloured logo, dark jeans, black gloves and black boots; #3 — wearing a dark jacket with light coloured stripes down the sides, a black hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans, dark gloves, white Adidas sneakers; #4 — wearing a dark jacket and a dark toque.
Anyone with information or can recognize or knows any of the suspects are urged to contact the Bashaw RCMP at 780-372-3793 or their local police. Anonymous tips can be provided without revealing your identity to CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or through the P3 Tips app or at www.P3Tips.com.
