WANTED - Pictured here is one of the suspects wanted after two men allegedly tried to steal two ATMs in Innisfail. The suspects were also seen in a stolen vehicle.

Red Deer RCMP are working with Innisfail RCMP after linking an attempted theft of an ATM in Innisfail in the early morning of April 12th to the attempted ATM theft in Red Deer later the same morning. The blue Dodge Ram used in both unsuccessful ATM theft attempts had been stolen out of Innisfail the same morning.

Shortly after 6:30 a.m. on April 12th, Innisfail RCMP responded to a report of an attempted ATM theft at the Boston Pizza. Surveillance video shows the suspect truck reversing into the doors, then a suspect running into the restaurant and fleeing again upon seeing that the ATM was empty.

At 8:07 a.m., the suspect truck pulled up to the front of the Red Deer convenience store on Golden West Avenue and the passenger entered the store and attached a tow rope around the ATM. The tow rope snapped, and the suspects fled the scene empty-handed in the truck. Red Deer RCMP located the abandoned blue Dodge Ram shortly afterward on 71st St. in the area of 66th Ave.

“This series of criminal acts shows the importance of the collaborative police work we do through multi-jurisdictional teams such as the Priority Crimes Task Force,” said Cpl. Karyn Kay of the Red Deer RCMP. “There are a relatively small number of criminals committing much of the crime across central Alberta police jurisdictions, and our investigations into these crimes are stronger thanks to our shared intelligence.”

RCMP continue to investigate.

Anyone with information about these crimes can Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575 or Innisfail RCMP at 403-227-3342. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
