They are also charged with possession of a weapon (a Mauser rifle) with no licence, possession of a prohibited weapon (an ASP baton), careless storage of ammunition and careless storage of a rifle.

At the time of his arrest Thursday, Gouthro was on release conditions for unrelated offences.

Bagnall was issued a fine on the breathalyzer charge of $1,350 and given one year to pay. His driving privilege has also been suspended for one-year.
