Drunk kid had sawed-off shotgun stashed in bedroom

Police say a Brandon boy faces a slew of charges after he was picked up drunk yesterday evening, and was found to have a sawed-off shotgun stashed in his bedroom.

The youth, whose exact age wasn't released by police, had been picked up by officers in the 800-block of Sixth Street, after his guardian reported that he had left home in an impaired state. Police say he was breaching the conditions of a court order by drinking alcohol, and he was taken to the drunk tank.

The guardian later called police to inform them that a sawed-off shotgun had been found in the youth's bedroom.

The boy has been charged with possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of a weapon contrary to a prohibition order and five counts of breach of probation.
