Leduc RCMP Respond to Complaint of a Firearm Being Discharged at a Residence in Leduc County.

    On Saturday, October 5th, 2013, at approximately 10:31 p.m., Leduc RCMP received a complaint of shots being fired at a rural residence in Leduc County, west of Township road 504.  Leduc City and Rural members immediately responded to the call and were assisted by Leduc Integrated Traffic services members, Sheriffs, RCMP emergency Response Team and Police Dog Services as well as a member from Devon, a nearby Detachment.

 

    RCMP set up a containment area and through their investigation determined that two heavily intoxicated males were inside a residence and after a verbal confrontation, 3 shots were fired.  Residents of the household, three children and their mother were able to escape the residence before police arrived.

  

    RCMP arrested and charged two males from the household without further incident.  No one was injured in the altercation.

The matter is still under investigation by the Leduc RCMP.  Names of those involved are not being released at this time, pending charges being laid.

Leduc RCMP Looking For Assistance in Identifying Robbery Suspect.

 

  

    On Tuesday, October 15th, 2013 at approximately 11:11 a.m., the Leduc RCMP were dispatched to an Armed Robbery at the New Sarepta Tavern on Centre Avenue in New Sarepta, Leduc County Alberta. The Leduc City and Rural RCMP immediately attended to the call and were assisted by the Leduc Integrated Traffic Services, Leduc General Investigations Section and Police Dog Services.  Witnesses told officers that a Caucasian male, average height, possibly in his late 30’s to early 40’s, muscular build, clean shaven, deep laugh lines around his mouth and a large nose entered the tavern as the clerk was getting ready for the start of her shift. The man was wearing a black hoodie and black sunglasses and was said to be carrying a small firearm when demanding that the clerk hand over the cash in the till. See composite drawing and pictures. 

    The man was reported to have taken an undisclosed amount of cash as he ran from the tavern. RCMP believe that the Suspect may be traveling in a small silver or grey colour Chevrolet Cavalier, possibly a 2004 model. At this time, the RCMP are still investigating this incident and would like to ask the public to notify them if you have information about this robbery, and NOT to confront the suspect as he may be armed and dangerous.

    Please contact your local RCMP Detachment at 780-980-7200, or 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  [www.crimestoppers.ab.ca].  You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers, and if you provide information to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest(s), the recovery of stolen property, and/or a seizure of illicit drugs, you may be eligible for a cash reward.
