A central Alberta man is facing multiple charges after he was arrested while riding an e-bike armed with a knife.

On May 19, RCMP were patrolling downtown Red Deer when they noticed the 45-year-old Red Deer resident riding the bike and carrying an extendable baton and a knife.

Mounties say further investigation found the man was carrying several other weapons, including a shotgun with the serial number scratched off.

He was also in possession of what RCMP called a "significant amount" of fentanyl and methamphetamine.

The man is facing 13 charges. He was scheduled to appear at the Alberta Court of Justice in Red Deer Friday. Top Stories
