Backgrounder

On October 10, 2021 around 6:30 a.m. Maidstone RCMP responded to a report of a robbery with a firearm that occurred on Highway #3 in the RM of Britannia near the communities of Paradise Hill and Frenchman Butte.

Initial investigation indicates a dark-coloured, four-door pickup truck forced a white car traveling on Highway #3 off the roadway. The truck then rammed the car. A firearm was pointed at the lone driver of the car. The driver of the car was able to flee the area and did not report any physical injuries. The occupants of the truck were not known to them.

Maidstone RCMP conducted immediate patrols of the area and did not locate the truck and van. Patrols continue in the surrounding communities and detachment areas.

The truck will have damage to the right rear bumper with some white paint on it. There were three people reported to be in the truck:

A second vehicle, a tan brown van with a cracked windshield, is also believed to be involved. There may be as many as four occupants in the van; no descriptions of them are available.
