Drumheller RCMP seize guns, cash, arrest two

Drumheller RCMP arrest a man and a woman and seize five restricted guns.

On Friday, Drumheller RCMP were investigating a complaint from a concerned citizen about a suspicious vehicle. Later the same day, a patrol officer located the vehicle parked in downtown Drumheller. While investigating the vehicle, a green 2004 Audi stationwagon, it was determined the plate on the vehicle was not a match and had been stolen.

A female passenger of the vehicle was detained exiting a nearby business and soon after police entered the business to look for a second suspect, the male driver. The suspect attempted to flee on foot from police but was apprehended.

When arrested the man was in possession of substantial amounts of cash and a loaded stolen handgun.

On Saturday, Drumheller RCMP executed a search warrant on the green 2004 Audi stationwagon. In that search, multiple items were seized including another stolen licence plate, methamphetamine and suspected GHB liquid. Police also seized an additional three revolvers and a pistol, which were located with ammunition consistent with all the calibers. One of the firearms was reported stolen from Saskatchewan.

Tyson McDonald-Sherba, 24 of Trochu is charged with possession of property obtained by crime, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, possession of stolen firearm, among other charges.

He has been remanded into custody and will be appearing via CCTV in Strathmore court Oct. 15

April Margaret Couturier, 32 of Drumheller is charged with possession of property obtained by crime and possession of stolen firearm, among other charges.

She has been released on her own recognizance to appear in Drumheller court on October 25, 2019

Drumheller RCMP would like to thank the public for continuing to report suspicious behaviour. Investigation is ongoing and police are requesting anyone with information about the pictured 2004 green Audi Stationwagon to report any suspicious confirmed sightings from the past week in the city of Calgary or surrounding areas to Drumheller RCMP Cpl Pergunas or Calgary Police Service Det.
