High River RCMP Seek Public Assistance to Recover Stolen Propery

High River, Alberta –  On Sunday July 1st, 2018 High River experienced a number of property related offences.

Sometime around 11:00 p.m. on Sunday July 1st, a white Dodge Ram pickup truck entered a rural property on 104 St just south of High River. The truck appeared to be casing the property before leaving. The truck returned to the same rural property at approx. 1230 a.m. and departed approx. 15 minutes later with a stolen Tango travel trailer and a commercial delivery bread truck.

At approx. 03:00 a.m., the delivery truck was seen by its owner parked in a parking lot at 5 St SE and 7 Ave SE in High River.  RCMP were called and attempted to stop the delivery truck on 498 Ave heading towards hwy 2 after it departed High River with the white Dodge Ram. Police did not pursue for public safety reasons after both the white Dodge Ram and delivery truck exited northbound in the southbound lanes towards Calgary at a high rate of speed. At the time of the attempted stop, the Tango travel trailer was not attached to the white dodge ram and it is believed to have possibly been abandoned somewhere earlier in the morning.

The delivery truck was abandoned sometime on July 2nd on 338 Ave east of Okotoks and has since been recovered and returned to the owner. The stolen Tango travel trailer with Alberta license plate 4YE413 remains outstanding.
