RCMP Report: Man in possession of guns at Motion Notion

Security officials for the Motion Notion festival informed police that a man had brought several fire arms to the outdoor party.

Intoxicated visitors

The RCMP responded to a report of an intoxicated male at the Holiday Inn Express on July 20. The Calgary man was uncertain of where exactly he was staying and was taken into custody until he was deemed to be sober.

Similarly, an Edmonton man was arrested outside of 7/11 on July 22. The male had wounds on his body and appeared as if he had been in a fight. He was treated for those wounds and released in the morning. He was still unsure how he had been hurt upon release.

Numerous car accidents around town

July 18: Police responded to a two-vehicle accident in the Sobey’s parking lot. The drivers exchanged information and no chargers were laid.

July 21: Two cars sustained minor damage after an accident on King Crescent. One vehicle was stopped at a stop sign when the other vehicle collided with it. No injuries were reported and no charges were laid.

July 22: A local resident hit a rental vehicle in the parking lot at the Wolf’s Den. The drivers exchanged information and no charges were filed.

Vandalism to lawn, sprinkler head

RCMP responded to a report of a damaged lawn and sprinkler head on July 20. A vehicle had apparently driven over the lawn of a home on 10th St. S. Police have no suspects at this time and anyone with any information is asked to contact the department.

Firearms at Motion Notion

Security officials for the Motion Notion festival informed police that a man had brought several fire arms to the outdoor party.  The man had 10 firearms in his trailer, three of which were handguns (one of which was loaded). All of the firearms were properly registered, but the man was charged for illegally moving the handguns and possessing a loaded weapon. He was released and given a court date.
