Replica Firearm Leads to Real Charges
Three teens face weapons charges after police recovered a replica firearm Friday.
Shortly before 3 p.m., police were informed of a male possibly in possession of a weapon at a business near Eramosa Road and Stevenson Street North. Officers arrived and saw three males standing together. One of the males handed a black bag to another male and the three walked away in separate directions.
All three males were stopped. A search of the bag revealed a replica Glock firearm. Two 16-year-old males and a 15-year-old male, all from Guelph, are charged with possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and breaching court orders. All have been released with court dates in the summer.
