The Drumheller RCMP are warn­ing res­i­dents not to put them­selves in harm’s way when crime strikes.

This comes af­ter an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the theft of a mo­tor ve­hi­cle last Tues­day night near Car­bon.

On March 21 at 10 p.m., the Drumheller RCMP re­ceived a call of a stolen 2013 Ford F250 truck from a res­i­dence in Car­bon. The owner of the truck wit­nessed the theft and at­tempted to stop the sus­pect by us­ing an­other ve­hi­cle. The sus­pect rammed the stolen truck into the ve­hi­cle the owner was driv­ing and then fled.

The aban­doned stolen truck was found in the ditch just out­side the town of Car­bon. The sus­pect is be­lieved to have been picked up by an­other ve­hi­cle and es­caped the area.

There were no re­ported in­juries, and the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing

The RCMP is cau­tion­ing peo­ple if they de­cide to in­ter­vene with a prop­erty crime such as this. Crim­i­nals can be very un­pre­dictable and can quickly es­ca­late to vi­o­lence, putting the public at risk of harm.

If any­one has in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this in­ci­dent or any other crime please con­tact the Drumheller RCMP @ (403)-823-7590. Anony­mous tips can also be pro­vided through Crimestop­pers.
