Red Deer RCMP investigate theft of 5th wheel trailer
Red Deer, Alberta – Red Deer RCMP are investigating the theft of a fifth wheel trailer from a locked compound in Queens Business Park the evening of June 3.
Shortly after 7:30 pm on June 3, two men in a truck broke into the Allan Dale Industries compound located on Queens Drive, hooked a fifth wheel trailer up to the truck and drove out through the front gate.
The stolen trailer is a Heartland Road Warrior 427RW worth approximately $121,000. One unique identifying feature of the stolen trailer is that it had a washing machine and dryer system installed, with a chrome dryer vent.
The suspect truck is a black Ford F150 with a large dent in the box behind the passenger side of the crew cab. Because the truck is not adequate for pulling a trailer of this size any significant distance, RCMP believe the fifth wheel may have been pulled a short distance and then hooked up to a more appropriate vehicle.
Police are asking any witnesses who may have seen suspicious activity involving a Heartland Road Warrior fifth wheel trailer in that area or around that time to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online. If your information leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward up to $2,000.
