On Friday, Airdrie RCMP Crime Reduction Unit and Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit arrested two males for trafficking in a controlled substance and possession of prohibited weapons.
Two brothers, 26 year old Robert Meidl and 29 year old Kurt Meidl, of Airdrie, were both arrested and charged with 14 drug and weapons related charges.
Police conducted an extensive investigation and arrested the two suspects without incident. The CRU team then executed a search warrant at their residence which resulted in police locating multiple firearms, including a loaded sawed off shotgun, and knives. Police also found approximately 7 grams of crack cocaine valued at $710, some cash, and a small amount of marijuana.
Both suspects have been detained in custody with bail pending.
