  • Airdrie, Alberta – Airdrie RCMP are investigating numerous graffiti “tags” discovered throughout the City on City of Airdrie property.

    The City of Airdrie Parks Department staff have been discovering several of these tags around the City. The tags are all believed to be created by the same person and usually they are painted as follows:

    · “S&B” and “GANG GANG”.

    The tags have been found mainly in the Southern side of the City in the areas of Nose Creek Park, Main Street, Luxstone, Edgewater, Bayside, and the Yankee Valley Underpass. The tags first started appearing around mid-November 2017.

    Under the Criminal Code of Canada, the creation of graffiti is considered vandalism. Vandals can be charged with mischief under or over $5000. Illegal graffiti is also a costly repair for the City of Airdrie.

    If you have any information about these tags or know whom may be responsible for them, please call the Airdrie RCMP at 403-945-7200 or call your local police. If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by SMS (check your local Crime Stoppers www.crimestoppers.ab.ca for instructions)

  • Robert ‘Bob’ Davies participation with basketball began in the late 1940s and lasted for more than 60 years. He coached, refereed, managed, established, and promoted basketball in the Edmonton leagues, and the Alberta and Canadian Associations. He was on the executive of both the Edmonton and Alberta Basketball Associations, and well as coaching youth teams at the community, junior, and senior high school levels and at national competitions.

    Bob’s interest in basketball start in 1947 while in grade 11 and he played club basketball until 1951. That’s when he founded, coached and played on his own ‘Davies’ team in the Edmonton Junior League. Throughout the 50s, Bob coached basketball and formed a number of junior, senior and intermediate leagues. In 1953, the Edmonton Basketball Association executive resigned, entrusting Bob with the development of sponsored basketball in Edmonton. He grew one 3-team men’s league into two 6-team men’s leagues.

    Bob was appointed to the Alberta Amateur Basketball Association as the Northern Zone Organizer in 1954. He was responsible for organizing many of the northern Alberta Zone and Provincial playoffs.

    Throughout his career, Bob officiated basketball games and did so until his retirement in 2011, officiating a career total of 1850 games. Bob received the City of Edmonton Recreation Citation in 1972 and was inducted into the Edmonton Sports Hall of Fame in 1992.

    Since it’s inception in 1957, hundreds of Albertans have been inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame.  We invite everyone to join us in this celebration of both new Inductees and returning Honoured Members, and their lasting impact on sport in our province.  If you would like more information on the Induction Banquet or to order tickets, please call (403) 341-8614.

  • Airdrie RCMP Intercept Vehicle Involved in Carjacking

     

    Crossfield, Alberta– The Airdrie RCMP have assisted the Calgary Police Service (CPS) to intercept a vehicle involved in a carjacking in Calgary and arrest the suspects responsible just outside of Crossfield, Ab.

     

    On Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at approximately 2:30 pm, Airdrie RCMP were alerted to a vehicle being followed by CPS HAWCS helicopter northbound on Highway #2 into Airdrie’s area. The vehicle had reportedly been carjacked at knifepoint inside Calgary. Airdrie RCMP attempted to stop the vehicle, a silver Dodge Caravan, but the vehicle continued northbound while also increasing speed. A short pursuit of the Caravan ensued involving multiple RCMP and CPS units. A spike belt was deployed successfully along Township Road 285 as the suspect vehicle travelled westbound towards Crossfield. The suspect vehicle slowed considerably allowing the CPS Tactical unit and RCMP to safely engage the suspect vehicle and arrest the two suspects, a male and a female, without incident. A search of the van was also completed where a large knife was located.

     

    The 35-year-old male suspect, who has yet to appear before a Justice of the Peace, is facing charges of robbery, flight from police, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, driving while disqualified and possession of methamphetamine. The female suspect is also facing charges.

     

    If you have information about this incident, or can identify either male suspect, please call the Airdrie RCMP at 403-945-7200 or call your local police.  If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by SMS (check your local Crime Stoppers www.crimestoppers.ab.ca for instructions).
