  • From Drumheller RCMP

    Drumheller man charged following search warrant and hoax bomb

    A Drumheller man is facing charges following the execution of a search warrant on an apartment in the 400 block of 11 Ave Sein Drumheller.

    The search warrant was executed by Drumheller RCMP with assistance from the Emergency Response Team.  Some suspicious items in the apartment resulted in the evacuation of the building and the deployment of the Explosive Disposal Unit.  Upon closer inspection, the suspicious items, packaged to look like homemade explosive devices, did not contain the required elements to be a danger to the public.

    A firearm seized from the apartment was consistent in appearance to a police carbine, but upon closer inspection and disassembly was deemed to be an airsoft with primarily metal components.

    Police would like to remind the public that replica or inert firearms used in the commission of an offense can bear the same penalties as if the item were a true firearm.

    Terry Heptonstall (39) of Drumheller is charged with:

    • Pointing a firearm
    • Possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose x 2
    • Mischief

    If anyone has any information on this or other offenses in the community please report to the Drumheller RCMP at 403-823-2630. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the “P3 Tips” app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.
