A local man is facing several weapons charges after an incident on Saturday afternoon.
Officers responded to a residence on the 1600 block of Ottawa Street around 4:46 pm for a weapons offence. Initial information indicated two men were inside, one of whom had a gun.
The property was surrounded and a short time later, a man with a sawed off 22 calibre rifle in his waistband exited through the back and was arrested without incident. A second man was also taken into custody, but later released.
32 year old Travis Rae Piapot of Edenwold faces six charges, those being Possession of Weapon For Dangerous Purpose, Carry Concealed Weapon, Careless Use of a Firearm, Unauthorized Possession of Firearm, Possession of Prohibited/Restricted Firearm with Ammunition and Possession of Weapon Obtained by Commission of Offence.
