The Airdrie RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a motorist involved in a hit and run on April 6.
At around 7:15 p.m. on April 6, Airdrie RCMP responded to a call about a collision involving a motor vehicle and a cyclist.
A teal four-door vehicle was driving westbound on Big Springs Drive and struck the cyclist, before continuing westbound.
The cyclist, a 17-year-old male from Airdrie was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
“He was pretty banged up with injuries to his legs, but not life-threatening,” said Cst. Jason Curtis, Airdrie RCMP.
At press time, police had not identified the make or model of the car. The vehicle is described as a four-door teal car driven by an Asian male.
“Any information that anyone has and can provide would be greatly appreciated,” said Curtis.
Airdrie RCMP is requesting the assistance of the public to identify two suspects involved in the theft of a car battery.
On Feb. 19 at 11:30 p.m. a man and woman were in The Breeze condo complex in Bayside, when a man broke into the indoor garage.
The woman waited by the front door in a black Chrysler 300. The man was spotted by surveillance cameras on site trying to open several car doors of vehicles parked in the garage.
He then returned to the waiting vehicle before the two entered the garage, where the man then stole a car battery. The two left shortly after midnight.
