Rocky Mountain House, Alberta – On April 7, 2020 a curfew check at a residence on 50 Avenue led RCMP to obtain and execute a search warrant.
At 8:45 p.m., RCMP were checking on a male subject who was bound to a residence by curfew conditions. While at the residence, the attending officers made observations that led to the arrests of five persons inside. A search warrant was granted and in the early hours of April 8, the warrant was executed.
RCMP seized two firearms, one of which is prohibited, as well as cash in excess of $14,000.00 and a substance believed to be cocaine.
All five persons were charged for firearms related offences, 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.
Judicial interim release hearings were held. 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.
“Apart from the obvious issues with criminal activity, we want to remind Alberta citizens of their responsibilities under the Public Health Order that is in place” says Staff Sergeant Carl Dinsdale, Detachment Commander of Rocky Mountain House. “The responding Members took this opportunity to provide education about everyone doing their part to keep other Albertans safe.”
