A Winnipeg man faces a slew of weapons charges after being caught carrying knives in downtown Steinbach last week.
A spokesperson for Manitoba RCMP said officers from the Steinbach detachment were called at 9:25 a.m. last Thursday, Aug. 19 to Barkman Avenue at Main Street, following a report that a man in the vicinity may have threatened people with a knife.
After speaking with witnesses, the officers determined no threats were made.
A 36-year-old man was arrested at the scene. A search of his person produced three knives. Back at the detachment, a search of his belongings yielded more knives, several BB guns resembling real firearms, and a lock pick set.
Tyler Wiebe was remanded into custody and charged with four counts of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and one count each of carrying a concealed weapon, possessing break-in instruments, and failing to comply with probation.
