After getting a search warrant, police found 17 living marijuana plants, four partially dried plants, multiple bags of marijuana and four guns.

He was charged with possession of a firearm without a licence, possession of over 30 grams of marijuana, possession for the purpose of trafficking, and production of marijuana.

He's also been charged with three counts of exposing his genitals to a person under 16 and six counts of criminal harassment.

He is scheduled to appear in Swift Current provincial court on Thursday.
