Blackfalds RCMP arrested a man they considered armed and dangerous after surrounding a home in the Alberta town north of Red Deer Tuesday night.

The Sylvan Lake man, who was wanted on outstanding warrants for attempted murder, was taken into custody without incident.

RCMP had asked residents to stay clear of the area near East Point Drive and Parkway Drive while they responded to the scene.

The incident is not related to the search for a man who was impersonating a police officer in the area on Tuesday afternoon, say RCMP.
