Rave App helps police return stolen property in Wainwright

Wainwright RCMP have returned a stolen truck, trailer, and ATV to their owners with the help of the Rave Mobile Safety notification system and the people of the community.

On March 7, at 6:25 a.m., the theft was reported to the RCMP who shared the information with the public through a Rave alert. At 11:05 a.m. a citizen reported seeing a truck with the stolen property in Fabyan. Then at 2 p.m. a local farmer reported the location of the ATV and trailer. Both witnesses recognized the stolen property after receiving the description via the Rave alert.

By 3 p.m., the owner of the property was hooking their trailer up to their truck and taking it back to Wainwright.

The rapid return of stolen property demonstrates the advantages of the Rave Mobile Safety mass notification system, say police.
