A man from Coaldale is facing a list of various charges after ALERT seized firearms and stolen property from his home.

The Southeast Alberta Property Crime Unit began an investigation back in September after police had been called to the suspect’s home numerous times.

A search warrant was then executed two weeks ago on Oct. 15th which turned up six firearms – including two saw-off shotguns, two rifles and two homemade zip guns – as well as firearms parts, ammunition and an array of stolen items.

20 year old Ethan Wiebe from Coaldale has been charged with a total of 10 firearms and stolen property related offences.

Officials with the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team, say they’re confident this arrest prevented an escalation of violence.

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!
