The Big River RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a black dodge 4 door pickup truck that has damage to the rear tailgate, drivers side taillight and a smashed rear window.

Preliminary investigation has determined that around midnight, approximately three kilometers south of Debden, SK., a rural property owner encountered at least two suspects stealing from his property. Two long-barrel firearms were reportedly stolen.

When the suspect vehicle fled, the property owner attempted to pursue in another vehicle. A number of shots were reportedly fired in his direction from the suspect vehicle and at that time the property owner discontinued his pursuit.

Big River RCMP responded and located the suspect vehicle. A monitored pursuit was authorized involving several RCMP units, however members were unable to safely stop the vehicle and lost contact with it.

The vehicle is described as a black, Dodge, 4-door pick-up truck that has damage to the rear tailgate, drivers side taillight and a smashed rear window.

RCMP advise that the suspects/vehicle should not be approached. If you observe the vehicle or have any information about this incident, please call 911 immediately. You can also contact the Big River Detachment of the RCMP directly at 306-469-2590, your local police service, any RCMP Detachment at #310-RCMP (7267) or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

RCMP also remind property owners that attempting to confront or pursue suspects can be extremely dangerous. We recommend instead, that people secure the safety of themselves and their families, call 911, and then observe as many details as possible until police arrive. If you can avoid a confrontation, it is advisable to do so.
