Red Deer, Alberta – Around 4 a.m. on June 6, 2022, Red Deer RCMP were conducting patrols in the city’s downtown when they observed a suspicious vehicle that was stationary at an intersection, despite a green light. A search of the licence plate determined it did not match the vehicle, and officers approached.
Officers observed an unresponsive male in the driver’s seat and affected an arrest. A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed two firearms, one of which had been stolen from a local business in 2021, prohibited ammunition and illicit drugs.
