Cape Breton man charged with firearm offences

A man has been charged with firearm offences after an incident in St. Peter’s.

On January 18th, police received a call about a man in a store on Grenville St. wearing an unconcealed handgun on his waist.

Police began investigating the incident and on January 20th RCMP executed a search warrant at a home on Old Band Office Rd. in Chapel Island.

Police say they arrested a 36-year-old man at the home without incident.

During the search police seized a rifle, a number of airsoft handguns and rifles, a prohibited magazine and ammunition.

The man was released from custody on conditions and will be facing charges of unauthorized possession of a firearm and unsafe storage of a firearm.

The man will appear in Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court at a later date.
