At approximately,on Tuesday, August 8th 2017, a dark grey Cargo Mate 20-ft utility trailer was stolen from a residence at the Bristol Oaks subdivision at 54315 Rge Rd 251 in Sturgeon County. The trailer had been secured and parked on the road in front of the house, but was not hitched to a vehicle. The trailer contained furniture and personal belongings belonging to one of the residents.
Although surveillance footage was obtained from a neighbouring home, it does not show the suspect(s). However, the involved vehicle appears to be a dark coloured pickup truck of unknown make or model.
Additionally, during this same night at the neighbouring subdivision of Fairway Blvd at 54321 Rge Rd 251, the same suspect(s) are believed to be responsible for entering an unlocked utility trailer and stealing various power tools and ATV helmets.
Morinville RCMP continue to investigate these thefts and are requesting assistance from residents in identifying the individuals responsible. Moreover, residents are reminded to ensure their vehicles are locked at all times, and to report any suspicious activity by calling 911 for emergencies, or Morinville detachment for non-urgent response at 780-939-4520.
