  • May. 26, 2017 7:48 p.m.

Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to identify a man who police believe is making a habit of stealing lottery tickets from convenience stores then making his escape in a stolen vehicle.

At 8:30 p.m. on May 19th, RCMP were called to the Express 24 in Highland Green after a man stole a tray of lottery tickets then fled in a silver Pontiac Grand Am that had been reported stolen out of Aldersyde the day before.

Red Deer RCMP are releasing a surveillance photo of the suspect, who they believe is responsible for a similar theft on Feb. 19th at the same location. At that time, the suspect stole a tray of lottery tickets and drove away in a Ford F350 that had been stolen out of Blackfalds, then recovered the truck in Red Deer on Feb. 22nd.

The suspect is described as tall, Caucasian, approximately 40 to 50 years old, in both instances wearing a ball cap.

Red Deer RCMP continue to investigate. Anyone with information about this investigation 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.
