Canadian Border Services Agency officials were on top of their game Wednesday, leading to the seizure of over a dozen firearms.
When two U.S. residents seeking access in Canada arrived at Emerson, they told officials they had 10 long guns to declare. The CBSA performed a routine search of the vehicle, and this second look at the contents not only revealed the 10 guns mentioned by the driver, but CBSA personnel also found six handguns, four knives, two pairs of brass knuckles and 117 overcapacity magazines.
Christopher Doyle Sanders, of Oklahoma, faces six charges under the Customs Act. Additional charges are pending.
Sanders was arrested and turned over to the CBSA’s Criminal Investigations Section, which is holding him in custody until a provincial court appearance.
