The St. Albert Crime Stoppers Association is asking for your assistance in solving the following crimes:

Gas n dash

On Dec. 7 at approximately 4:12 p.m., an unknown male attended the Gate Avenue Petro Canada and fueled the silver four-door Honda he was driving. The male got back into the Honda and drove away without paying for the fuel.

The male was wearing a green jacket which had a blue hood, beige work pants and a black hoodie on his head.

Hit and run

On Dec. 12, at approximately 6 p.m., a blue Volkswagen Golf was traveling southbound on St. Albert Trail approaching Gervais Road when a white semi-truck sideswiped the Golf, causing damage to the driver's side of the vehicle. The force of the impact pushed the Golf into the curb causing the vehicle to stall. The driver of the semi truck continued southbound on St. Albert Trail and did not stop.
