Loaded sawed-off shotgun seized by Rocky Mountain House RCMP in traffic stop

Drugs, stolen bank records and Mastercard numbers also seized by police

Rocky Mountain House RCMP’s new crime reduction unit seized a loaded sawed-off shotgun and other weapons during a traffic stop this week.

The bust happened shortly after noon on Monday, when police spotted a vehicle with a stolen licence plate.

“Three occupants in the vehicle were arrested and a search of the vehicle revealed several weapons, drugs believed to be crystal methamphetamine, a large amount of stolen securities and stolen documents, bank records and Mastercard numbers,” said RCMP.

Brianna Crookedlegs, 20, is facing 21 charges, and Connor Heap, 27, is facing 19 criminal charges and three charges under the Traffic Safety Act.

Jennifer Kimberley McDougall, 33, is facing 14 criminal charges.

Among the charges each is facing are possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of property obtained by crime, identity theft, and possession of instruments used to copy credit card data.

Crookedlegs and Heap also face several counts of failing to comply with a release order condition.

Heap and McDougall were released from custody and are due in Rocky Mountain House provincial court on June 17.

Crookedlegs remains behind bars and will be in court the same day.

“In this period of uncertainty, public safety remains an RCMP priority,” says Staff Sgt. Carl Dinsdale, detachment commander of Rocky Mountain House RCMP.
