Police search for suspects

Red Deer RCMP are looking for two men who tried unsuccessfully to steal an ATM from the East Hill Fas Gas early Monday morning.

The failed theft occurred at 2:45 a.m. on July 18th when a white truck with a covered license plate pulled up to the front entrance of the Fas Gas on 30th Ave. and 22nd St. with a tow strap attached to the rear of the vehicle.

The first suspect used a sledgehammer to smash the glass door; once inside, his partner attempted to cut a hole in the ATM with a portable saw. When those attempts were not successful, the suspects drove away. The entire theft attempt took approximately five minutes.

The first suspect wore a black hoodie with ‘Ruthless’ in white text on the front and ‘Crooks and Castles’ in white text on the back. The second suspect wore a camouflage jacket with a hoodie and camouflage pants.

Anyone with information about this crime 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.
