Federal border agents laid 11 charges last month against a 31-year-old man after a firearms seizure involving 3D-printed guns.
The Canada Border Services Agency intercepted and seized a suspicious package in November at an international mail processing centre.
Agents say the package, which was addressed to a resident of Garnett Settlement, N.B., contained two prohibited overcapacity 9mm magazines.
With help from the RCMP, investigators searched a home in Garnett Settlement, near Saint John, on Jan. 20.
“During the search, CBSA seized a prohibited 3D-printed 9mm handgun with a prohibited overcapacity 15-round magazine and silencer, a restricted.22 calibre handgun, a bolt action rifle and a 12-gauge shotgun,” reads a news release.
That same day, CBSA Criminal Investigations charged Bradley Hoy, 31, with the following:
- Four counts – Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm
- Two counts – Possession of a Prohibited Device
- One count – Tampering with a Serial Number
- Four counts – Unsafe Storage contrary to regulations
Hoy appeared in New Brunswick Provincial Court before being remanded into custody.
He was scheduled to make his next court appearance on Tuesday.
