A man accused of murder in Edmonton has had another run-in with police.
Justin Sandquist, 26, is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the stabbing death of Aaron Cote at a south Edmonton Travelodge nearly three years ago. Sandquist was let out on bail.
Now police say they found a machine gun in his Red Deer home in a series of drug raids two weeks ago. They were going after drug traffickers in Red Deer and Sylvan Lake.
The Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team says they seized a MAC-11 subcompact machine gun, capable of firing hundreds of rounds a minute, along a silencer and two extended clip magazines.
