Airdrie RCMP charge two males with forcible confinement; “a male and female were being held against their will”

Airdrie, Alberta – At approximately 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 13, 2020, Airdrie RCMP responded to a complaint of a recovered stolen vehicle. Upon arrival at the residence where the stolen vehicle was located, it was determined that a male and female were being held against their will at the residence. Police containment was set up and a short time later two suspects were arrested without incident. Both victims were scared but unharmed.

Preliminary investigation suggests that this incident was a direct result of those involved being associated with the illicit drug trade.

A search of the residence resulted in the recovery of a loaded .45 caliber handgun. One of the suspects was also taken to hospital as a precaution as approximately one ounce of what is believed to be fentanyl and a half ounce of methamphetamine drugs were seized from their person.
