RCMP investigate found motors

  • Oct. 6, 2016 7:18 p.m.

Red Deer RCMP continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding two large motors that were located in a City green space last month.

RCMP received a report the morning of Sept. 26th that two large motors had been found in the area of the CPR Walking Bridge and 53rd Ave. One was located just off the path sitting on a yellow jack, and the second had been placed into the trees and covered with branches. Each engine weighs between 300 lbs and 500 lbs and RCMP have not yet determined how they were transported to the area.

Police believe the engines may have been stolen for the copper wire contained in them, although that copper wire had not yet been removed; RCMP have not been able to link the engines to any recent thefts or break-ins in the area so far.

One engine was manufactured by Teco-Westinghouse and the other by English Electric Company of Canada.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to 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.
