The Drumheller RCMP has two in custody following a firearms complaint on Sept. 15.

Shortly before 9 a.m., officers received a report of a vehicle on Highway 56 north of Drumheller driving erratically and discharging a firearm at other vehicles.

The vehicle occupants were observed going into a residence in Rumsey, Alta., where they were arrested upon police arrival.

Following the execution of a search warrant on the residence and the vehicle, a firearm, ammunition and spent shell casings were seized.

As a result of the evidence collected, Crystal Anne Primrose, 30, of Stettler, has been charged with:

· Discharge firearm with intent,

· Firearms offences (x6),

· Recklessly discharge a firearm,

· And failure to comply with a probation order.

James Hussey, 49, of Rumsey, has been charged with:

· Dangerous driving,

· Discharge of a firearm with intent,

· Firearms offences (x6),

· Reckless discharge of a firearm,

· Failure to appear in court (x2).

Following an appearance before a justice of the peace, both individuals were remanded into custody with their next court date scheduled for Sept. 18 in the Didsbury Alberta Court of Justice.

Despite charges being laid, the Drumheller RCMP continues to investigate the matter; in particular, the detachment is looking for dash-cam footage showing a white and blue Chevrolet pickup truck between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 15 in the vicinity of Highway 56 and Highway 9, Range Road 210 to Highway 839, and Highway 839 to Rumsey.
