Calgary, September 24: RCMP officers have seized dozens of guns, including an AR-15, from a Calgary man after he allegedly flashed a firearm at someone during a road rage incident earlier this month.
Officers from the Strathmore detachment were called to Highway 1 east of Calgary on Sept. 10 for reports of a road rage incident involving a handgun.
Mounties stopped the suspect on Highway 1 near Range Road 270, arresting him and a passenger who was in the vehicle.
RCMP say officers found a loaded 9mm handgun in a holster under the driver’s seat and a 12-gauge shotgun with ammunition behind the back seat.
RCMP say the majority of the suspect’s restricted or prohibited firearms were not registered.
Officers also seized a number of prohibited devices such as magazines capable of holding more than the permitted number of rounds.
Trevor Hauck, 51, is charged with:
- Pointing a firearm;
- Using a firearm in the commission of an offence;
- Unsafe storage of a firearm;
- Carrying a concealed weapon;
- Possession of a prohibited weapon knowing unauthorized;
- Unauthorized possession of a prohibited device.
RCMP say additional charges are expected.
“It’s fortunate nobody was harmed,” said Staff Sgt. Mark Wielgosz. “Public safety is of paramount importance which was the driving factor in the immediate response and subsequent search of a residence to prevent further offences.
