Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to identify a suspect who fled from police on Feb. 9th after unsuccessfully attempting to fraudulently obtain a loan using stolen identification.

RCMP were called to the Cash Canada at 5405 50th Ave. shortly before 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 9th in response to a report of a man attempting to get a loan using identification and other personal documentation that did not appear to belong to him.

When the suspect saw police entering the store, he fled to a waiting white Kia hatchback, which drove away heading southbound on Gaetz Avenue. RCMP initiated a traffic stop but the vehicle refused to stop for police; RCMP did not pursue the vehicle due to public safety concerns.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked ti=o contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
