Man and woman rescued from home by Airdrie RCMP

CALGARY — Airdrie RCMP say charges have been laid against a local man as well as a man from Winnipeg in connection with a stolen vehicle investigation this week.

Authorities were called to respond to a scene at 1:30 a.m. Sunday after a stolen vehicle was found in the community.

While police attended the home where it was found, they discovered a man and woman who were being held against their will.

Officers quickly surrounded the home and, a short time later, two suspects were arrested without incident.

Airdrie RCMP say the incident is linked to the drug trade and a subsequent search uncovered a loaded .45 caliber handgun.

One of the suspects was taken to hospital after police found one ounce of what’s believed to be fentanyl and a half-ounce of a substance believed to be methamphetamine.

Both of the victims were not harmed.

Abdal-Majid Fares, 31, of Calgary is charged with:

  • Two counts of adult forcible confinement
  • Two counts of uttering threats against a person
  • Three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking
  • Resist/obstruct a peace officer
  • Possession of property obtained by crime
  • Fail to comply with release conditions

Mark Hurdan, 29, of Winnipeg is charged with:

  • Two counts of adult forcible confinement
  • Resist/obstruct a peace officer
  • Possession of property obtained by crime

Both Fares and Hurdan were remanded into custody and are expected to appear in Airdrie provincial court on Sept. 28 and Sept. 17 respectively.
