On Sept. 23, 2021, at 9:51 pm, High Prairie RCMP received a 911 call regarding an incident involving an individual who was believed to be impersonating a police officer at a rural residence southwest of High Prairie.

The male suspect, who was dressed in civilian attire, identified himself a police officer, but did not produce police identification. He advised he needed fuel. The homeowner provided him with fuel and the male left towards High Prairie.

The male suspect is described as:

  • Medium complexion
  • Clean cut short hair
  • Blue Jeans
  • Coat
  • Cowboy boots
  • Ring on right hand of a skull
  • Scar on nose/lip
