A Strathmore RCMP search warrant yielded guns and prohibited devices at Langdon residence.
On May 7, at approximately 9:30 a.m., the Strathmore Detachment General Investigation Section (GIS), Emergency Response Team, and a Police Service Dog executed a search warrant on Dead Horse Road.
A male and female were arrested and taken into custody. The search yielded firearms, prohibited devices, ammunition, and a small amount of what is believed to be illicit Cannabis, a Strathmore RCMP media release said.
The female was arrested and released to appear in provincial court at a later date with charges.
The male, a 46-year-old Langdon resident was held for a hearing and remanded into custody on 27 new charges, the release said.
