RCMP release names, photos of suspects wanted in Lethbridge area ammolite theft

RCMP have identified two suspects wanted after a fossil worth thousands of dollars was stolen from a local ammolite mine.

Workers at the mine near Lethbridge spotted the pair during their lunch-break last Thursday.

They say one of the men stuffed a fossil from an ancient, coiled shellfish into his backpack before the pair took of in a pick-up truck.

Raymond/Magrath RCMP say they got a 911 call about a theft in progress but were unable to locate the suspects.

34 year old Bryan Fyfe and 26 year old Logan Heavy Shields have been charged with theft over $5,000.

The suspect pick-up truck is a red, 1988 GMC but police say its appearance may have recently been altered to include a black stripe.

The value of the ammolite hasn’t been determined but officials say it could be worth around $40,000.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to call police.
