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.
