Wetaskiwin RCMP are investigating a theft of motor vehicle, and two attempted thefts of motor vehicles in the south end of Wetaskiwin over the weekend.

Saturday, November 28, in the vicinity of 41 Avenue and 52 Street, Wetaskiwin, a citizen saw two suspects fleeing from his running truck outside of his residence at approximately 10 p.m. The vehicle owner had parked the vehicle earlier, turning it off, and locked the doors. It is likely that the suspects were scared off when the owner turned on some lights in the residence. The 1997 Dodge Ram had the door lock punched out, and the ignition punched as well. It was left running when the suspects fled.

At approximately 11:20 p.m., the Wetaskiwin RCMP responded to a theft of vehicle in the area of 42 Avenue and 45 Street. A turquoise 1997 Ford F150 was taken from outside of a residence. The vehicle had been locked, and no keys taken. The vehicle is still missing, and the license plate is BMP 3332.

Police received a third call Sunday morning of another vehicle in the area of 37 Avenue and 54 Street in which both the key lock and ignition were damaged, but the vehicle was not taken.

If you have any information on this, or any other crime please call the local RCMP at 780-312-7200, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477) and www.tipsubmit.com . You do not need to provide your identity to Crime Stoppers, and if your information leads to an arrest or recovery of property you could be eligible for a cash reward.
