Olds RCMP seek public assistance in identifying suspect in “Jason” mask

The Olds RCMP were dispatched early this morning to a break and enter at the Dodge Dealership in Olds where three different vehicles were stolen.

At 2:46 a.m., the RCMP received a complaint that a suspect vehicle came to the dealership, rammed a barricade and stole two Dodge Ram trucks and a Jeep Grande Cherokee.   The suspects left, each driving a different vehicle.   

Investigation shows that three male suspects were dropped off by a Ford truck, and the suspects gained access to the dealership.  One person remained in the cab of the Ford truck.  A cleaner was working in the dealership at the time, but there was no interaction between the cleaner and the suspects.

The RCMP have attached surveillance photos showing a male wearing a “Jason” mask, a black t-shirt with white writing, blue plaid shirt and blue jeans. Descriptions are not available in relation to the other two suspects.

If you recognize this male or have any information about this investigation, please call the Olds RCMP at 403-556-3324 or call your local police detachment.

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.

Blackfalds RCMP – Warn of Attempts to Steal Property

On August 14th, 2018 the Blackfalds RCMP took a call for service from a person who resides on a rural property in Red Deer County of two males attempting to steal a utility vehicle from his property.

Two males entered the rural property, exited their vehicles and advised the property owner that they were “repo people.” The males did not present themselves as people who would be on the property for that purpose, as well they could not or would not produce documentation or identification. Several attempts were made by the two males to convince the property owner that they were there for this purpose up to and including the use of names of random people to convince the property owner.

This is to warn the public of these activities taking place and should something of this nature occur to contact your local police detachment or service. Should anything about the interaction be suspicious a call to the police should be a priority. If the person(s) on the property are there for a legitimate reason, they should be able to provide proper identification and paperwork for that purpose.

If you have any information about any such incidents please contact your police detachment or service.  If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or on the internet at www.tipsubmit.com.  You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers and if your information leads to an arrest, you may be eligible for a cash reward.

Organizers of The Battle of Alberta are thrilled with the results of an incredible fund raising effort drawing together fans and players of Alberta’s two NHL clubs for a festival of fund raising and fun.

Alumni and Current Players of the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers travelled from across North America to the Red Deer Golf and Country Club for the inaugural “Battle of Alberta”.

The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre has expressed gratefulness to the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers organizations for their support.  They also thank the team of volunteers who made every aspect of the fundraiser possible.  Finally and most importantly, hats off to all the sponsors who gave the better part of two days of their time and made massive financial commitments as well.

Here’s event co-chair Al Sim from a press release at the outset of the tournament:

Mark Jones, Chief Executive Officer of the CACAC, together with the centre’s staff and service partners, couldn’t be more pleased with this inaugural event. “Supporters of the centre have worked tirelessly since the formation of the coalition group who were determined to help with the desperate need for child advocacy in Central Alberta. We are collectively changing the way Central Alberta responds to child abuse. The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is a not for profit organization, governed by a board of directors that works in an integrative partnership with the Central Region Child and Family Services, Alberta Health Services, Alberta Justice, Alberta Education, the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre, and the RCMP to better service children, youth and families impacted by sexual abuse and the most serious/complex cases of physical abuse and neglect”.

The centre has professionals onsite dealing with the criminal aspects of the case, as well as child protection, medical and psychological needs of child victims and their families. Onsite professionals include police officers, physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, and crown prosecutors with the common goals of: improved timeliness in the coordinated assessment and investigation of child abuse cases; increased access to support and therapeutic resources for the child and their family; enhanced collaboration among partners; more efficient and effective use of resources; increased knowledge and awareness of child abuse in the community.

Working collaboratively, we achieve greater results than any partner could on their own. It blends investigation, treatment, prevention, education and research with expertise to provide an integrated practice approach: wrapping around children and always “working in the best interests of the child”.
