Stony Plain RCMP seized a cache of weapons and drugs last Friday after a search of a rural residence just north of the town.

“We’re never going to alleviate the entire drug problem in Stony Plain, but this is a significant amount,” said Const. Janine Peter of the Stony Plain detachment. “Given the firepower of the weapons seized, we’re very happy to have taken that off the street, even from a public safety point of view.”

As a result of the bust, 49-year-old Glenn Frimen Tremblay of Stony Plain was charged with 21 counts related to firearms offences. He was also charged with possession of marijuana and possession of hash for the purpose of trafficking and possession of property obtained by crime.

Tremblay was released on $15,000 cash bail and is due to appear in Stony Plain Provincial Court on Aug. 25.
