Guns seized at Cornwall border

CORNWALL – A Quebec man is facing drug and weapons-related charges after an inspection at Cornwall’s border crossing.

City police say the 56-year-old from Saint-Hubert was arrested Friday after Canada Border Services Agency officers found marijuana and four long guns in a vehicle.

Cornwall police say there was no permit for the guns.

The man was charged with possession of marijuana, unauthorized possession of firearms and possession of firearms in a motor vehicle.

He was held for a bail hearing in a Cornwall court.

This seizure came in the same week as a multi-force police agency crackdown called Project Harden shut down a handgun trafficking ring, running out of Cornwall.
