Cold Lake RCMP looking for suspects in attempted vehicle theft

Cold Lake RCMP is looking to identify three suspects in attempted thefts from last week.

During the early morning hours of August 15, three suspects were seen on video surveillance checking for unlocked vehicle doors down 47th Street and Meadow Way.

The three suspects were on foot, and can be seen wearing large light colored hoodies, two of the suspects wore baseball caps and one suspect had the hood up over the head.  Cold Lake RCMP continue to investigate and are seeking the public’s assistance to identify the suspects in the video.

Constable Alan Coles would like to remind citizens to follow the #9PMRoutine, which encourages people to lock up their property to protect against crime. The #9PMRoutine is a movement that is supported by police forces across the world.

They suggest these ideas to include in your 9 p.m. routine:

  • Turn on outside lights at night
  • Lock your doors
  • Put away toys and bikes in a locked, safe location
  • Put away tools when you’re finished with them
  • Put away outdoor equipment such as lawn mowers and weed trimmers
  • Lock up off-highway vehicles (ATVs, dirt bikes, etc.)
  • Double check vehicles are locked and keys are removed

Cold Lake RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance for any information in relation to this incident (or identifying those responsible). Please contact Cold Lake RCMP at 780-594-3301 or your local police. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the “P3 Tips” app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.”
