Airdrie RCMP investigating two thefts from October


Airdrie RCMP is investigating a theft from a vehicle in the parking lot at the Days Inn on Highland Park Cove N.E. Oct. 31.

Alberta RCMP Media Spokesman Cpl. Curtis Peters said video surveillance cameras obtained from the hotel shows a Caucasian man, wearing a grey and green shirt, blue jeans and a white ball cap, entering a parked pickup truck and taking items from inside.

“He entered the cab of the vehicle but there’s no sign of forced entry so it appears the vehicle may have been unlocked,” he said.

After removing the items from the pickup truck, Peters said the suspect then put them in a white Dodge truck with Alberta license plate BGG-3525.

“The plate that was attached to that vehicle had been reported stolen in Fort McMurray,” he said. “We’re not sure if it was by the same individual. That’s something that will have to be further investigated, as well. We don’t know the status of the vehicle itself because we have to get a VIN (vehicle identification number) to check that.”

Peters said RCMP is not releasing a list of the types of items stolen from the vehicle at this time as this information may help determine the identity or guilt of the suspect.

RCMP is asking anyone who recognizes the man to contact Const. Greg Neufeld at 403-945-7200.

Airdrie RCMP is also investigating a month-old theft from the Airdrie Walmart and asking for help to identify two men whose images were caught on video surveillance stealing a number of items.

“They stole several hundreds of dollars worth of goods,” Peters said. “It was grocery items, clothing, automotive parts – a whole bunch of stuff.

Peters said the two men loaded the items into a shopping cart Oct. 13 and left the store without paying. They then fled in a silver four-door vehicle.

RCMP describes the first suspect as Caucasian, balding and approximately 5’10” tall. He is between 45 and 50 years of age and was wearing a grey sweater.

The second suspect is also described as Caucasian with a thin build, approximately 5’9” tall with brown hair. He was wearing a dark-coloured ball cap and dark-coloured hoodie.

Anyone who recognizes the suspects or has information on this crime is asked to call the Airdrie RCMP at 403-945-7267 and ask for Const. Jean-Olivier Raymond.

If you have any information about any crime, contact the Airdrie RCMP detachment at 403-945-7200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at
