EDMONTON — What started as a stop for not having a bell on a bike turned into almost 20 charges for an Edmonton man.

Police stopped the 25-year-old for riding on the sidewalk and not having the bell.

Police say they gave him a false name, so he was arrested for obstruction of justice.

While officers were trying to arrest the man, a knife fell out of his pants.

That led to a full search of his backpack, where police say they found a sawed-off shotgun, drugs and trafficking paraphernalia.

The cyclist is now facing charges related to weapons, trafficking, obstruction and breaching conditions, along with the ticket for not having a bell on his bike.
