PINCHER CREEK – RCMP in Pincher Creek are looking for the public's help in gathering information on several incidents they believe are all connected and committed by the same person(s).

Officers were dispatched on the evening of the Sunday, Nov. 4, about a man driving a stolen Kubota side by side on Highway 774 heading east, away from Castle Mountain Ski Resort, but they didn’t find him.

A short time later RCMP learned a residence in the area had been broken into, and items inside had been stolen. 

After searching the area, a Ford F-350 was located, that had been stolen out of Raymond. It’s believed that this vehicle was driven and then abandoned by the same man driving the Kubota. 

The man and Kubota were then seen driving around properties in Beaver Mines when a homeowner confronted him and struck up a conversation. 

The Kubota was later found abandoned in Beaver Mines, but again, police did not locate the man. 

Then on Nov. 5, it was learned that the suspect had stopped at the Beaver Mines general store the previous day while driving the stolen F-350. 

At one point, the man entered the store where security surveillance captured him, and he was identified by the homeowner as being the same man he had spoken to on the stolen Kubota.

If you have any information about this or any other crime, the Pincher Creek RCMP is asking you contact them at 403-627-6010 or call your local police detachment, or if you wish to remain anonymous you can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
