Red Deer RCMP investigate break and enters involving a firearm

Red Deer, Alberta – Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to identify a suspect believed to be responsible for two business break and enters yesterday morning in a north Red Deer industrial area; the suspect is believed to have then stolen a car and fled the area. 

At 7:50 am on October 25, RCMP responded to a report of a commercial break and enter in the area of 49 Avenue and 78 Street after a staff person arrived at a hydraulics business and interrupted a break and enter in progress. The suspect allegedly pointed a sawed off shotgun at the staff member then fled on foot. The suspect was wearing a black and orange motorcycle helmet. RCMP contained the area and searched for the suspect with assistance from Police Dog Services, and re-opened the area a short time later after determining it was safe for the public. 

RCMP have linked the suspect to another break-in to an oilfield supply company business in the same area that morning, and believe the suspect was responsible for the theft of a black 2007 Acura from a nearby business. The car has not yet been recovered. 

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male with a scruffy beard. 

If you have information about these incidents, please contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575.
