North Bay Police Services executed a search warranted that resulted in the arrests of two individuals.
Police say an investigation allowed them to secure the search warrant and the officers used it on Thursday to enter a Main Street residence. The search led to the recovery of stolen property including a stolen mountain bike and a stolen crossbow with arrows that had been reported stolen in early November. Also seized at the residence were three non-restricted firearms with ammunition. A fourth non-restricted firearm had been manipulated in length making it a prohibited firearm.
As a result, a 40-year-old male and a 35-year-old female have been arrested and charged with:
- One count of Possession of a Prohibited Weapon
- One count of Unsafe Storage of a Firearm
- One count of Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm
- Two counts of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime
- Two Counts of Possession of a Firearm Contrary to a Prohibition Order
A third person at the home will not face charges related to this incident. Both accused have been held in custody pending a bail hearing at the North Bay Courthouse.
