Two men have been charged and police have seized a small arsenal featuring a range of weaponry, from high-powered rifles to a medieval flail.

Multiple RCMP enforcement units executed a search warrant on a rural property east of Innisfail. Innisfail RCMP were joined by the RCMP auto theft unit, Red Deer Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team and Red Deer County Patrol on Monday to execute the warrant.

One male was arrested at the location and a search uncovered numerous stolen items, including a vehicle, two dirt bikes, drugs and multiple weapons, including a prohibited firearm.

The person who rents the shop where the police raid took place was located and arrested in Penhold, police say. His vehicle was seized while two large dogs were inside his vehicle. Animal control officers safely removed the dogs from the vehicle and police say a search found a loaded .22-calibre handgun, as well as cocaine and stolen property.

As a result of the second arrest, a search warrant was granted for a residence at 1221 Lucina St. in Penhold. This search by Innisfail and Red Deer RCMP members led to the seizure of loaded firearms, more weapons and stolen property.

William Thomas Moore, also known as William Thomas Austin, 33, of Penhold, faces 17 charges, including possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of stolen property over $5,000 and numerous weapons related charges. He was remanded into custody and will appear in Red Deer provincial court on May 5.

Greg Montague, 33, of Red Deer faces eight charges, including possession of stolen property and weapons offences. He was released on a $1,500 cash bail and will appear in Red Deer provincial court on May 13.
