Breton man faces charges

A 29-year-old man from Breton found himself to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when he was stopped by Rimbey RCMP.

A 29-year-old man from Breton found himself to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when he was stopped by Rimbey RCMP while driving downtown during the evening of Jan. 1.

A search by officers showed him to not only have brass knuckles in his vehicle, police also turned up substances which are believed to be crystal meth and cocaine. Three loaded firearms were also found.

The individual is now facing several charges and will appear in Provincial Court in Rimbey on Jan. 22.

The arrest followed a busy month for the local RCMP, said Const. Carman Dutz.

“In keeping with the Christmas season, members of the RCMP were able to tie a bow on a few files by making arrests and laying charges for a variety of offences,” said Dutz.

Solving crimes related to possession of stolen mail and vehicles, possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking, weapons offences and impaired driving kept officers busy.
