The community of upper Newcastle had a high police presence on Tuesday morning executing a search warrant.
"This morning we executed a search warrant here on 4th Avenue with the assistance of the Emergency Response Team and negotiators from our district office," explained Acting Detachment Commander for the Drumheller RCMP, Gerald Sherk.
"Four people were arrested. Everyone is safe, but there are four people facing firearm charges," he continued. "Our investigation is still on the way, our search is yet to be complete, so there may be other charges as well."
Sherk goes on to say that he does not know at the present moment if the suspects will be released today.
