Four people are facing multiple guns, drug and weapons charges after a pair of recent traffic stops.

In the first traffic stop on December 28 on Highway 54 near Innisfail, Mounties seized a loaded sawed-off shotgun, ammunition, face masks, break-in tools and a controlled substance.

Taylor Curl, 29, of Red Deer faces numerous counts including unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm with a tampered serial number and possession of a controlled substance.

The second traffic stop took place January 1 on Range Road 25 when RCMP saw a prohibited gun magazine in plain view inside the vehicle. A subsequent search of the vehicle saw police seize a semi-automatic sub machine gun, two 36-round gun magazines loaded with ammunition, two pistol magazines, nun chucks and other assorted ammunition.

Charged are Jeromy Arsenault, 25, and Steven Matson, 34, from Rimbey and Katelin Savard, 26, from Innisfail.
