Red Deer RCMP investigate attempted fraud

February 14, 2017 9:50 AM

Red Deer, Alberta – Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to identify a suspect who fled from police on February 9 after unsuccessfully attempting to fraudulently obtain a loan using stolen identification.

RCMP were called to the Cash Canada at 5405 50 Avenue shortly before 7:30 pm on February 9 in response to a report of a man attempting to get a loan using identification and other personal documentation that did not appear to belong to him. When the suspect saw police entering the store, he fled to a waiting white Kia hatchback, which drove away heading southbound on Gaetz Avenue. RCMP initiated a traffic stop but the vehicle refused to stop for police; RCMP did not pursue the vehicle due to public safety concerns.

Please see attached surveillance image of the suspect.

If you have information about this incident, please contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online.
