Rocky Mountain House RCMP seize guns, more than $14K in cash after curfew check

Rocky Mountain House RCMP came upon an expected seizure Wednesday.

During a random curfew check at a residence on 50th Avenue the day before, officers noticed activity that led to the arrest of five individuals.

Early Wednesday, officers executed the warrant, and in addition to the arrests, seized more than $14,000 in cash, guns and a substance believed to be cocaine.

All five people arrested were also charged with firearm offences, as well as possession of property obtained by crime and possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.

Four of the five were charged with failing to comply with various court orders.

Two of the individuals, Shane Alexander Blair, 19, and Matthew Christopher Roy, 32, remain in custody.

Samuel Robert Beaver-Hawman, 20, Michaela Deann Thomson, 21, and Lansin Jim Goodrunning, 23, have been released for future court dates.
