Oh, so that's what happened.

Many a time we see the police going about their business, never entirely sure what they're up to. In my last post I mentioned an incident up to block. Well, I actually found out what happened this time.

On January 8, 2011 at approximately 1:00 a.m., members of the District 3 Crime Unit with the assistance of the Tactical Support Team, Street Crimes Unit, Canine Unit and Uniform members, executed a search warrant for firearms at a residence.
It was at this time officers observed a male suspect fleeing the residence while in possession of a duffle bag. The suspect was arrested and taken into custody without incident. The duffle bag containing the following items was seized by officers:
· Loaded semi-automatic machine gun
· 9 mm handgun
· 22 calibre semi-automatic rifle
· Various rounds of ammunition.
A 17 year old male has been charged with the following offences: Possession of Weapon for Dangerous Purpose x 3, Breach of Firearms Regulation (Unsafe storage) x 3, Unauthorized Possession of Firearm x 6, Unauthorized Possession of Weapon x 3.
He has been detained at the Manitoba Youth Centre.

Good to know that they got those guns out of the neighbourhood, even if it's just for a little while. Even knowing what it was that happened, I still get a laugh out of the "go inside and turn off the lights" idea.
