ATTEMPTED ARSON: On August 9th, 2016 between 3:15 am and 3:40 am the Whitecourt Detachment was called to an attempted arson of a camper trailer that was parked in the alley off of Kallbom Crescent in Whitecourt. The camper was occupied when the arsonist attempted to light the camper on fire. Thankfully due to the swift actions of neighbours the fire was extinguished without injuries or the loss of life. There was minor damage done to the camper as a result of the fire.

There may be residents in the area who have outdoor surveillance which could provide a lead to a possible suspect and charges. We are asking for the public’s assistance in solving this crime.

Any information can be reported directly to the Whitecourt Detachment at 780-779-5900, or to Crime Stoppers via telephone at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477), or online at, or text TIP250 to CRIMES(274637). All information will be kept anonymous and confidential. See MoreSee Less
