Of note, this last week Olds RCMP have had a few reports of suspicious vehicles being parked near rural residences or oil lease sites appearing to "scout" out rural farm properties. A couple thefts from fuel tanks on farms have occurred with very little suspect information to proceed with an investigation on.

On December 17th, 2018 Olds RCMP received a report of a stolen 2015 Renn RFM350 Feed Wagon being stolen off of a farm west of Olds. The approximate value of the property stolen was $18,000.

RCMP would like to request the assistance of rural homeowners to be on the lookout for a piece of farm equipment matching this feed wagon that may be parked or abandoned near their property and report to RCMP if it seems out of the ordinary.


On January 6th, 2019 at about 8:30 p.m Olds RCMP received a report from a concerned citizen who reported seeing a suspicious truck with holiday trailer parked at the Didsbury/Olds Regional Airport.

Olds RCMP officers attended and spoke to a male who was found inside the holiday trailer. He provided a name to the RCMP, and was found to be on outstanding warrants. As a result of this the male was arrested and further investigation completed revealing he provided RCMP with a false identity in an attempt to evade arrest for breaching several conditions of his release on other matters. RCMP also found the truck to have a stolen licence plate on it.
