RCMP are on the lookout for a thief who stole a credit card near Rimbey, then used them in Rocky Mountain House.

On Friday, Dec. 16, a pickup truck was stolen from a rural property north of Rimbey, but was later recovered nearby, abandoned.

However, the contents of the owner’s wallet were stolen from the inside of the pickup truck, and one of the credit cards was used about an hour later. The card was used in a store in Rocky Mountain House, with a man captured on surveillance using the card.

Stettler RCMP commander Sgt. Phil Penny, though not involved in this investigation, noted that most break and enter and theft crimes are crimes of opportunity. He said to deter thieves, people should lock their vehicle doors and not leave valuables in the vehicles.

In the past, items like wallets, identification, cheques and credit cards have been lifted out of wallets left in vehicles, used later by the thieves.

If you have information about this investigation or can identify the suspect male, please call the Rimbey RCMP at 403-843-2224 or call your local police detachment. If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by SMS.
