Yarmouth Rural RCMP members responded to a mis-dialled 911 call on August 5 and made an unusual discovery while they were checking the home to ensure there was no emergency. RCMP officers found that the homeowner had a total of 100 firearms in the home, including 94 long guns and six handguns, none of which were properly secured.
The homeowner was arrested without incident for Unsafe Storage of a Firearm, and police seized all 100 guns. The homeowner was later released and is scheduled to appear in Yarmouth Provincial Court in October.
The investigation is ongoing.
