Blackfalds RCMP investigation finds guns, weapons, drugs and stolen cheques

Two individuals arrested after suspicious vehicle spotted

While out on patrol, Blackfalds RCMP spotted a suspicious vehicle.

Two suspects have since been arrested and are currently in custody awaiting a bail hearing. Names are not being released at this time as the charges have not been sworn before the courts.
