ARRESTS MADE – ALERT Red Deer with the assistance of RCMP Red Deer and the K-Division Emergency Response Team seized 16 firearms, over 1,000 rounds of ammunition, 28 grams of methamphetamine, and a variety of stolen property from a residence in the downtown in close proximity to two schools on Jan 23rd.

The guns are believed to be stolen from homes throughout Red Deer and Central Alberta, and highlight a growing Alberta trend of crime guns being acquired through residential and commercial break and enters.

Five people were arrested and are facing a total of 230 charges related to drugs and guns.

Those charged include Joseph Daniel Swain, 30, Joseph Russell Sinclair, 26, Stephanie Dawn Hughes, 31, Angie Faye Deneff, 33, and Amanda Dawn Fox, 31.

Swain was arrested as result of a vehicle stop in north Red Deer. He had a handgun stashed in the driver’s side door panel and another wedged between the driver’s seat and center console. Fifty rounds of ammunition were located in the center console. Swain was bound by a 10-year firearms prohibition from a previous court decision.
