Unlocked vehicles in Fort Macleod prove tempting to thieves

SGT. LAURA AKITT – GAZETTE CONTRIBUTOR
Over the last week Fort Macleod RCMP have responded to several reports of thefts from unlocked motor vehicles.
In all cases, small amounts of cash and small personal items were taken.
The RCMP reminds everyone to ensure they lock their vehicles and remove all valuables when not in use.
Disturbance charge
On Feb. 26 Fort Macleod RCMP responded to an intoxicated male passed out in the waiting room of the Fort Macleod Health Centre.
The man was arrested for disturbing the peace and lodged into cells.
A 33-year-old man from Fort Macleod was charged with causing a disturbance, released from custody and is to appear in Fort Macleod provincial court on April 13.
Death threat
On Feb. 26 Fort Macleod RCMP received a complaint of a man who threatened to beat the complainant to death.
This occurred in the Queen’s Hotel at about 5:30 p.m.
A 52-year-old Fort Macleod man has been charged with uttering threats. He was released from custody on conditions, and is scheduled to appear in Fort Macleod provincial court on April 13.
Tires slashed
Sometime overnight on Feb. 27 unknown persons slashed four tires of a vehicle parked on 11th Street near Second Avenue in Fort Macleod.
This matter is still under investigation. Anyone who has information regarding this Criminal Code offence is urged to contact the Fort Macleod RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
Warrant issued
On Feb. 27 at 5:30 a.m. police were called to an assault on 11th Street in Fort Macleod.
When police arrived, the suspect had fled the location, and the victim was in need of medical attention.
A warrant for the arrest of Cody Alan Pfeiffer has been issued for assault causing bodily harm, assault, mischief and breach of recognizance.
Anyone who knows the location of Pfeiffer is urged to contact the Fort Macleod RCMP.
Telephone scam
Fort Macleod RCMP want to advise of a recent phone scam in which the callers are contacting people advising they work with a known bank and request their assistance in catching an employee who has been stealing money.
The caller requests that a person go to the bank withdraw various amounts of money and then meet the caller to turn over the cash.
This scam is mainly targeting seniors. In 2015, more than 40 complaints were received by the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
If you receive any calls of this nature, do not respond and immediately contact your local police agency.
