Red Deer RCMP seized 14 guns, thousands of rounds of ammunition and explosives from a mobile home in Parkside Estates in Normandeau on Thursday at about 9 p.m.

RCMP Explosive Device Unit was consulted to ensure the safe handling and disposition explosive material and fireworks found.

A number of the guns were illegally modified. Six replica guns, numerous stolen credit and debit cards, tools and other items were also seized.

Police executed a search warrant for the mobile home following an investigation into a report of a break and enter at a commercial yard in north Red Deer on March 6.

Police located the suspect and took him into custody without incident at a traffic stop.

Shared intelligence between Sylvan Lake RCMP and Red Deer RCMP regarding recent property crimes, including firearms thefts in the area, led Red Deer RCMP to apply for a search warrant for the suspect’s residence.

RCMP continue to investigate.
