Olds RCMP have charged three Mountain View County residents with firearms and drug offences, after recovering drugs and firearms during a rural property search.

On April 3, RCMP executed a search warrant and seized several items, including:

  • 200 grams of suspected cocaine;
  • Two grams of suspected amphetamine;
  • 250 Gabapentin pills;
  • Eight cartons of contraband cigarettes;
  • Seven firearms and 200 rounds of ammunition;
  • A stolen Dodge Ram 2500; and
  • Two stolen utility trailers.

A 52-year-old man, a 47-year-old man and a 42-year-old woman faces several charges including careless use of firearm, possess a firearm without a licence, possession of stolen property over $5,000 and possession of contraband tobacco for the purpose of selling.

All three have court dates set for later this month.
