A man is facing charges after police say he was found in a home that didn’t belong to him while holding a rifle. The Bonnyville RCMP say the incident took place on June 1st.
Mounties say the rightful homeowner returned home from a weekend away and entered the house on Lakeshore drive only to find the suspect inside and holding a .22 calibre rifle.
The RCMP arrived quickly and arrested the man without incident. The 34-year-old has been charged with breaking-and-entering and theft of a firearm among other charges.
Nobody was hurt during the ordeal.
