Teens facing firearms charges

Four Brandon youth face firearms-related charges after threats were made and a sawed-off gun was found in their trunk.

Police were called around 4:30 a.m. on Saturday, after a car pulled up to a home on Garwood Drive and a witness heard one of its occupants say they were looking for a male who they were going to shoot.

Another witness saw one of the occupants point a long-barrelled gun out of one of the car’s windows before the vehicle sped off.

Police were provided a description of the vehicle and its occupants and spotted it late that evening, around 9:45 p.m. They pulled it over, on the 100-block of Lorne Avenue, and found a sawed-off .22-calibre rifle as well as bullets in the trunk.

Arrested on firearms offences were four Brandon young people, one aged 17, two 18 and one 19. They will face charges of possessing a weapon for dangerous purpose, unauthorized possession of a weapon in a motor vehicle, possession of a prohibited or restricted weapon with ammunition and unauthorized possession of a firearm.

One of the 18-year-olds appeared in court on Monday and was released on bail. The other three were released to appear in court at a later date.
