RCMP investigate theft of five vehicles

Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to identify a group of thieves who stole five vehicles from a car rental company in the early hours of July 3rd.

At 12:35 am on July 3rd, suspects broke into the return key box at a local vehicle rental company by prying it out of the cement. They then stole three vehicles: a Ford Fusion, a cargo truck and a cargo van.

Three male suspects then returned to the location at 1:45 a.m. and stole the remaining two vehicles in the lot: a Dodge Ram and a Jeep Compass.

RCMP obtained video surveillance of the suspect Ford truck and the male driver, and are looking for public assistance to identify them.

The Ford Fusion was recovered by Red Deer RCMP on July 9th when they responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle and arrested the 26-year-old man they found inside it. The Jeep Compass was recovered after it was abandoned on 67 St. the evening of July 8th.

Still outstanding are a white 2017 Ford Transit van, Alberta license plate E11699; a white 2017 GMC Savanna van, Ontario license plate AS87748 and a silver 2017 Dodge Ram, Alberta license plate L86939.
