Cochrane RCMP have charged an Edmonton man who allegedly broke into a rural home in Cochrane on Sunday afternoon.

This incident happened around 2:30 p.m., when Mounties were called to the residence in Rocky View County for reports of a man armed with a gun trying to steal a vehicle.

Upon arrival, Cochrane RCMP say they noticed the man had broken into the home. He maintained periodic communications with police and eventually threw the gun out of the window.

RCMP continued trying unsuccessfully to get the suspect to surrender, police said.

The RCMP Emergency Response team attended the scene and arrested Cory Leon Bull. The 42-year-old man was charged with 12 counts including theft of a firearm, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, possession of property under $5,000, break and enter and failure to comply with conditions.

Bull has been remanded and is scheduled to appear in a Cochrane court on Friday.

No one was injured during the incident.
