On March 10, 2022, Airdrie RCMP Crime Reduction Unit were on patrol when they recognized a male who they knew to have outstanding warrants in a vehicle in the Reunion neighborhood, located in Airdrie. Members intercepted the male in a parking lot, and he was arrested without incident.

A search of the vehicle incidental to arrest led to officers locating a loaded rifle along with numerous tools that police believe were intended to be used as break-in instruments.

  • Careless use of a firearm
  • Unauthorized possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle
  • Possession of break-in instruments
