Whitecourt RCMP are looking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects wanted in a string of offences that resulted in a robbery at the Eagle River Casino in early February.

On February 3rd, police received multiple calls for service relating to the theft or attempted theft of vehicles and ATMs in the Whitecourt area.

Police first responded to a convenience store where suspects attempted to steal an ATM; however, they were unsuccessful due to security measures.

Later that day, police responded to a robbery at the Eagle River Casino where two suspects drove a vehicle through the doors of the casino and then threatened an employee while stealing an ATM. The suspects removed the ATM and departed but due to business practices, the ATM did not have any cash inside.

Police believe these and other occurrences are connected. Surveillance images were obtained and RCMP are asking for help in identifying the suspects and the two stolen vehicles they used.

The first vehicle sought is a black 2006 GMC Sierra 3500 that was stolen displaying Alberta licence plate BKY0083. It has an 11-inch lift, 38-inch tires, a cracked windshield and a light bar installed between the fog lights.

The second vehicle is a white 2011 Ford F-350 that was stolen displaying Alberta licence plate CBZ1880.

If you have any information regarding this occurrence, please contact Whitecourt detachment at (780) 778-5454 or your local police. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
