On April 11, 2017 at approximately 7:45 p.m. a battery site in Leduc County was the target of a theft. The site is located near Hwy 616 and Hwy 771, at the northwest corner of Pigeon Lake.

Security cameras on the site captured the theft on video. A dark coloured, newer Dodge Ram is seen entering the site shortly before 7:45 p.m.

Two males are observed on the video. The driver remains in the truck and a full view of him is never seen. The driver appears to be Caucasian, late 20’s or early 30’s and is noted to have a beard.

The passenger exits the truck on two occasions to steal items from the site. The passenger appears to be in the same age bracket as the driver. He is wearing a Canucks sweater, jeans and boots.

The suspects are only on the site for two to three minutes before departing.

If you have any information that could assist in this investigation, please contact the Thorsby RCMP at 780-789-3951; or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.crimestoppers.ab.ca if you wish to remain anonymous. Cash rewards are offered for information leading to arrests and convictions.
