Although some pieces of recently stolen Alberta RCMP uniforms have been recovered after a break-and-enter in Calgary's Northwest, police are asking the public to remain vigilant.
The break-in is believed to have happened earlier this week, on Tuesday in the Rockland Park community and police believe two unknown individuals broke into a home belonging to an Alberta RCMP mountie between 7:45 a.m. and 12 p.m.
Among other items stolen were several pieces of jewelry, handbags, wallets, as well as multiple RCMP uniforms and boots. The total value of the stolen property is over $5,000.
"It is believed the suspects may have been driving a U-Haul truck at the time of the theft. One of the suspects, a man, was seen wearing a red reflective work jacket," CPS stated in a media release.
While some pieces of the stolen uniforms have since been recovered, other pieces remain outstanding. Police reminded residents that if they have a concern about an individual identifying themselves as a police officer, they can request to see the individual’s police badge and photo identification card.
Anyone with information about this incident, or who has security camera or dashcam footage from the area on the morning of Tuesday, September 19 is asked to contact police by calling 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers.
