The St. Albert Crime Stoppers Association is asking for your assistance in solving the following crimes:
Overnight, between 6 p.m. on Friday, March 4 and 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 5, someone entered a home under construction at Eastbrick Place and stole a $3,000 fireplace. The suspect(s) entered the residence through a basement window, cut the exhaust vent to the fireplace and left the house through the back door.
Stolen deep fryer
On Tuesday, March 2, someone stole a Frymaster deep fryer from behind the Taco Bell/KFC building located on St. Albert Road. The deep fryer was in need of repairs and had been set out behind the store. At about 2 p.m., an older blue pickup loaded up the deep fryer and drove off with it. The Frymaster deep fryer is valued between $6,000 and $9,000.
Break-in at pub
On Saturday, Feb. 26, at about 4:20 a.m., St. Albert RCMP received a report that a side door at Friday's Pub, located on Carnegie Drive, had been smashed in. It appeared that person(s) unknown had smashed the door, entered the pub and then left without taking anything. It is suspected that the suspects may have been interrupted during this break-in as they did not remove any property from the pub. A white or light-coloured pickup was seen on security video near the pub at the time of the break-in.
Hit and run
On Wednesday, Feb. 2, between 12:45 and 1 p.m., a witness saw a black car hit the driver's-side rear bumper of a silver or grey car that was parked on the street outside the wine bar at the corner of St. Anne Street and Perron Street. The female driver of the black car continued to drive away before stopping on a residential street to check her car for damage. St. Albert RCMP have spoken to the driver of the black car, who admitted to hitting the parked car. Now the RCMP want to speak to the owner of the silver or grey parked car to ensure that a collision report is completed on this hit and run.
