The Lloydminster RCMP are looking for suspects after a sporting goods store was robbed a couple of weeks ago.
Police said that sometime between the late evening hours of Oct. 15, and the early morning hours of Oct. 16, the store was broken into.
The suspect(s) smashed the front door and stole merchandise, including several pairs of expensive sunglasses and brand-name hooded jackets. The RCMP is looking for the public’s assistance in locating the suspect(s). A newer, dark, four-door GMC Sierra Z71 truck with a honeycomb grill was used in the break and enter.
One suspect is described as Caucasian, 5-foot-9 to six-foot-one, heavy set, mid to late 30s and balding. “This crime took place in a high traffic area and police are hoping that someone driving by during this incident may have information,” said Const. Grant Kirzinger. “If you see something that strikes you as odd or out of the norm, chances are it is. Police are encouraging the public to call 9-1-1 even if it is just a hunch.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Lloydminster RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
Van struck by train
On Oct. 18, 2014, just before 9 p.m., Lloydminster RCMP responded to a call of a van that was struck by a train at the crossing of 52 Street and 52 Avenue. There were no injuries sustained as a result of the crash.
“Railway crossings are very dangerous and the RCMP is very relieved that there were no injuries,” said Kirzinger. “The RCMP want to remind drivers to always be aware of the red flashing lights and check both ways before crossing any railroad crossing.”
