A routine ride check stop has resulted in firearms charges being laid. On Tuesday Haliburton OPP stopped a vehicle on Highway 118 and Glamorgan Road in Dysart et al Township and while talking to the man driving, officers saw two large gun safes and gun cases in the back of the truck. Neither the driver nor his passenger had a Firearms Acquisition Certificate (FAC) and were arrested for Unauthorized Possession of Firearm. A search of the driver at the scene uncovered a switch blade knife in his pocket. A search of the truck discovered a .22 calibre rifle and two .22 calibre semi-automatic assault style rifles, along with approximately eleven thousand (11,000) rounds of ammunition. The driver, a 31 year-old Simcoe man was charged with unauthorized possession of a firearm and carrying a concealed weapon. His passenger, a 29 year-old Haliburton man is charged with unauthorized possession of a firearm. Dates are set for Minden court in December.
