Two people were arrested after a traffic stop in northeast Edmonton.
Officers noticed a truck with a mismatching licence plate, and pulled it over near 118th Avenue and 40th Street just after 7pm Wednesday night. Four people were inside, they all tried to make a run for it.
Two of them were stopped and brought into custody. Police say a search of the truck turned up seven long rifles, two of which were loaded, as well as hundreds of rounds of ammo.
The truck came up as stolen, along with some of the rifles.
The two men are facing various weapons and stolen property offences, they’re also waiting on Athabasca RCMP to show up to question them on previous charges there. (kdr)
