Grande Prairie RCMP search for man that allegedly threatened to shoot vehicle

GRANDE PRAIRIE, A.B. – The Grande Prairie RCMP are looking to identify a man suspected of threatening to shoot a vehicle on Highway 40 earlier this month.

Mounties are unable to confirm if this incident is connected to reports of shots being fired at three different vehicles earlier this fall on Highway 40. In this latest incident on November 11th, a semi-truck was travelling on a service road when a black pick-up truck pulled out in front. The black pick-up truck approached a three-way intersection and turned onto Big Mountain Road.

When the Semi-truck pulled up to the intersection, the driver noticed that the male driver got out of the truck and grabbed what appeared to be a long-barrel firearm from the back seat. The man then proceeded to point it at the driver of the semi-truck. Police say the semi-truck proceeded through the intersection without any further incident. No shots were fired and no one was injured.

The male suspect was described as:

  • Caucasian
  • Between the age of 40-45 years old
  • Standing 6’ tall
  • Weighing between 210 lbs and 220 lbs
  • With dark curly ear-length hair
  • Wearing grey sweatpants, camouflaged jacket, and round/oval shooting glasses.

Should you have any information regarding this matter contact the Grande Prairie RCMP Detachment at 780-830-5700 or should you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1.800.222.8477 (TIPS) or by Internet at www.tipsubmit.com.
