RCMP have charged a 32-year-old male with weapons offences after they received a number of 911 calls saying he was allegedly carrying a firearm while walking down the main road in Little Saskatchewan First Nation.
Police say the incident happened on Friday, February 7, 2020. At one point the accused allegedly pointed the weapon at a snowmobiler and demanded their machine. The snowmobiler was able to safely leave after refusing the suspects demand.
Officers searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect. As the investigation continued officers were led to an area in Fairford First Nation.
The suspect was then located and placed in custody but the weapon was not found.
A police dog was brought in and searched the area locating a long gun buried in the snow.
Aron Summer from Fairford First Nation has been charged with Robbery with a Firearm, Pointing a Firearm, Careless Use of a Firearm, Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose and Using a Firearm in the Commission of an Offence for his alleged involvement.
