Leduc RCMP Looking For Assistance in Identifying Vandalism Suspects. 

      Over the past few weeks, The Leduc RCMP received many calls for service with regards to vehicles that have had their tires slashed while being parked over night. To date, the Leduc RCMP has received over 16 different complaints of vehicles with their tires being slashed. The RCMP have been investigating these incidents and are following up several leads but have made no arrests at this point.  

    Several videos of a possible suspect were taken by a business at a location where a vehicle had its tires slashed.     The male in the photo was wearing a medium coloured blue hooded jacket, hat and darker blue pants, possibly jeans.  The man appears to be approximately 5’10” tall 

with a stalky to heavy build.

    The Leduc RCMP is still investigating this incident and would like to ask the public to notify them if you have information about these events. The RCMP would like to remind the public not to confront the suspect but to 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.

    Leduc RCMP Looking For Assistance in Identifying Vandalism Suspects. 

    On the 26th of October, Leduc RCMP were dispatched to an act of Vandalism at the new Daystar Church property on Rollyview road.  A representative of the Daystar Church told officers that the vandalism  had taken place during the night and that a large section of their new Church facility was covered with graffiti. Since this is such a large section of the building that is facing the main road on Rollyview, police believe that there is a good possibility that there may have been witnesses.  Leduc RCMP would like to ask the public to notify them if you have information about this act of vandalism.
