RCMP is seeking the public's assistance to identify four suspects involved in a brazen attempt to remove an ATM from an area business.
On September 20, 2019 at approximately 4 a.m., four suspects wearing gloves and masks made entry to the Tofield Esso by ramming the business with a vehicle. One suspect armed with a firearm ordered two employees to another room while they attempted to secure a tow strap to the ATM.
Suspects were unsuccessful in removing the ATM when RCMP arrived on scene. A black pickup containing the suspects fled from RCMP towards Strathcona County. A second white pickup was abandoned by the suspects on scene. A brief police pursuit ensued, but the suspects and vehicle remain at large.
Fortunately, none of the employees on site were injured during the robbery. RCMP Forensic Identification Services is assisting with the investigation.
