Rocky Mountain House RCMP find stolen guns, cars because of several traffic stops

Several traffic stops conducted by Rocky Mountain House Mounties have led to arrests, property seizures and the recovery of a stolen sedan.

From April 2 to 6, RCMP members conducted the numerous stops. Some, such as the one on April 2 led to an arrest of a person accused of violating parole, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and possessing a controlled substance.

On April 6, three stops led to serious charges against several men. The largest seizure included seven stolen firearms.

Police said they found a vehicle that was believed to have been involved in recent property thefts around the area. A traffic stop was completed and the driver was arrested.

A 24-year-old man is charged with 25 offences, including firearms and stolen property charges.

A suspicious vehicle reported in rural Clearwater County was located and determined to have been stolen two days earlier. Two people were found inside the vehicle and arrested. A 32-year-old is charged with property, weapon and break-in instrument offences.

A report of a suspicious person in the Nordegg area led to officers stopping a vehicle on Hwy 11. The 22-year-old male driver was arrested and police say the vehicle was stolen out of Calgary. He faces stolen property charges.
