A 27-year old man was arrested in Taber this week, accused of trafficking firearms between that southern Alberta town and Calgary.

Officers executed a search warrant on Tuesday (May 19) as part of a joint investigation between Taber Police, the Guns and Gangs Unit of the Calgary Police Service and the National Weapons Enforcement Support Team.

That search resulted in charges against Dylan Matthew Braun, 27 of Taber, including eight counts of trafficking restricted weapons, as well as one count of possessing stolen property over $5,000 in relation to a stolen pickup truck and one count of uttering a forged document.

Braun has been released on bail with strict conditions. He’s expected to appear in court in Taber on July 28.

The investigation is ongoing in Calgary, but police say there is no indication of any further ties to Taber.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
