A 20-year-old RM of Tache man is facing weapon related charges after recently flashing a gun at a driver on Highway 12 North.

On August 21, 2019 at approximately 7:08pm, Steinbach RCMP received a complaint that a male in a vehicle had flashed what was believed to be a handgun through the sunroof of the vehicle at the driver of another vehicle. The incident occurred on Highway 12 North.

Police say that after noticing the suspect vehicle driving south on PR 206, a high risk take down stop was conducted by members of the Steinbach and St. Pierre RCMP Detachment.

As a result of the take down, RCMP report that two males (18 and 20 years of age) from the RM of Tache, were arrested as a result of this incident. Police noted that the handgun was determined to be an airsoft pistol.

Both suspects have released from police custody with the 20-year-old male facing weapon related charges.
