May 23, 2017 12:59 PM

Red Deer, Alberta – Red Deer RCMP seized four firearms and large quantities of ammunition Sunday evening at a Vanier Woods residence after responding to a firearms complaint. 

Shortly after 8 pm on May 21, RCMP attended an apartment building on Van Slyke Way to investigate a report of a man believed to be in possession of a loaded firearm. RCMP contained the area and made contact with the man, who was the only person in the residence. Police were admitted into the apartment without incident, where they seized four rifles, one of which was loaded, and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition. No one was injured in this incident and no firearms were discharged.

A 35 year old man will face firearms charges, but those charges have not yet been sworn before the courts.
