Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to identify a suspect who broke into a parked vehicle in the area of 33rd St. and 47th Ave. early Sunday morning and stole a suitcase containing the personal effects of a boy who had recently died.

RCMP responded to the report immediately after the theft occurred at 5:47 a.m. on Feb. 19th.

It is believed that there were two suspects who entered the parked grey car on 33rd St.; the suspects stole a large purple suitcase that contained personal effects and mementoes belonging to the family of a deceased 14-year-old boy.

RCMP have searched the area for an abandoned suitcase and continue to investigate.

Police are asking residents in the area of 33rd St., Kin Kanyon and the nearby trail systems to check their yards and garbage cans for an abandoned suitcase or personal effects they believe may belong to the grieving family, and to keep an eye out for such items while walking the trails in that area.

RCMP further ask anyone who is in possession of this stolen purple suitcase to drop it or its contents off at the downtown Red Deer RCMP detachment at 4602 51st Ave. or call 403-343-5575 to make arrangements to have it returned.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575.
