Thefts and impaired driving keeps Stettler police busy

Stettler RCMP stopped a vehicle for a traffic infraction along 58 Street in Stettler on Dec. 2 at 2:20 a.m.

A breath demand was subsequently made on the driver, a 27-year-old male from Stettler.

He will appear in Stettler Provincial Court on Jan. 13 to enter a plea to a charge of failing to provide an adequate breath sample.

Concerned motorists reported that a vehicle was stuck in the ditch along Highway 11 west of Erskine on Dec. 4 at about 11:20 p.m.

They reported that the driver appeared impaired.

Police investigated and a 28-year-old male from Red Deer now faces a charge of fail to comply with an undertaking due to alcohol consumption.



A blue 1998 Ford F150 truck was stolen from the 5400- block of 50th Avenue in Stettler on Nov. 30.

The truck was parked there overnight and displayed Alberta license plate 29J-113.

Big Valley Arena was broken into overnight on Dec. 1 as various locked rooms were broken into causing much damage and money was stolen.

Fas Gas in Stettler suffered the theft of over $200 in fuel after a customer filled up and drove off on Dec. 1.

The vehicle involved is a white Dodge truck with a lift kit.

Again on Dec, 5, the same service station lost fuel to a patron driving a silver SUV-type vehicle.

In this case it is thought that the customer may have believed their ‘pay at the pump’ transaction was processed, when in fact it was not.

Youths were confronted by watchful residents along 65 Street in Stettler on Dec. 2 at 8:45 p.m.

It is believed a group of teens were entering parked vehicles along the street.

A business compound in the 3800-block of 46 Avenue in the Stettler industrial area was broken into on Dec. 3.

Other buildings or units were broken into and the stolen property is yet to be determined.

A license plate was stolen off a Ford F150 truck on Dec. 6.

This vehicle was parked in the 4900-block of 53 Street in Stettler. The missing Alberta plate is 40C-370.
