RCMP seized a quantity of firearms Wednesday morning during the execution of a search warrant at this home in St. Stephen.
Three teenagers face charges after St. Stephen RCMP executed a search warrant at a Ross Avenue apartment in St. Stephen, Wednesday.
Police seized firearms, several of which were loaded, along with a quantity of cash, and other items believed to be related to criminal activity.
"The unlawful possession of firearms, particularly firearms which are not properly stored and loaded, pose a threat to public and police safety" says Sgt. Bob McKnight, District 1 RCMP.
A 17-year-old male, an 18-year-old female, and another 18-year-old male were arrested at the apartment. All three have been released from custody on conditions to appear in St. Stephen Provincial Court at a later date.
The investigation is continuing.
