An Altona man is facing a slew of firearms related charges after he was arrested by RCMP early last week.

Shortly after the 22 year old was brought into custody last Tuesday, members of the Pembina Valley RCMP along with National Weapons Enforcement Support Team (NWEST), the Emergency Response Team (ERT) and Police Dog Services (PDS), executed a search warrant at a home in the RM of Stanley.

As a result, RCMP say a stolen firearm equipped with a homemade silencer was discovered and seized, along with ammunition, several crossbows and other types of small weapons.

The man was remanded into custody on charges of Possession of a Weapon Obtained by Crime, Unsafe Storage of a Firearm, Possession of a Firearm with Tampered Serial Number, Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm and several counts of Possession of a Weapon Contrary to Court Order.

Investigation continues.
