Firearms seized from residence near Brocket

A 37-year-old man faces a long list of criminal charges after Piikani Nation RCMP seized seven rifles, along with ammunition and firearms parts, from a residence near Brocket.

Jessie Flett was arrested after a search of the residence, where RCMP on March 18 located a pickup truck allegedly involved in a March 12 flight from police in Fort Macleod.

Piikani Nation RCMP have charged Flett with seven counts of unlawful possession of a firearm, seven counts of unsafe storage of a firearm, eight counts of possession contrary to prohibition order and one count of possession of stolen property under $5,000.

Additional charges under the Traffic Safety Act have been laid in connection with the Fort Macleod incident.

Under the Petty Trespass Act, Flett is also accused of entering land without permission.

He remains in custody and is scheduled to appear Thursday in Pincher Creek court of justice.
