Five Red Deer men face charges after RCMP located a stolen vehicle and four firearms during a series of linked investigations in Riverside Meadows on Oct. 25th.
Red Deer RCMP were patrolling in the Riverside Meadows neighbourhood when they located a stolen car parked at a residence and observed a suspect who was known to be wanted on warrants in the garage at the residence. When the suspect refused to surrender, RCMP applied for a warrant to enter the garage. As police officers made entry, the occupants surrendered without incident. RCMP seized two long guns and ammunition from the garage.
RCMP returned to the area shortly after 11:00 p.m. the same night after receiving a complaint of suspicious males who were reported to be searching in bushes and dumpsters with flashlights. RCMP contained the area and located one suspect, who was found to be in breach of a number of court-imposed conditions. RCMP located two firearms in a bag under a nearby vehicle and seized them.
