Dur­ingthe night be­tween April 25th and the 26th, Cana­dian Bor­der Ser­vices Agency (CBSA) of­fi­cers seized two firearms at the Stanstead bor­der cross­ing on route 143. On April 26th, at 3:45 in the morn­ing, a res­i­dent from the United States was stopped en­ter­ing Canada through the Stanstead bor­der cross­ing. Af­ter re­spond­ing eva­sively to the of­fi­cer’s ques­tions and pro­vid­ing sus­pi­cious in­for­ma­tion on his itin­er­ary, the in­di­vid­ual was sent to the sec­ondary in­spec­tion area. His ve­hi­cle was found to con­tain two hand­guns (cal­iber .40 and cal­iber .25). Both of the guns were loaded.

Crim­i­nal charges of mak­ing a false state­ment and smug­gling have been laid against the in­di­vid­ual who ap­peared at the Sher­brooke Court­house on April 26th.

In 2011, the CBSA seized a to­tal of 513 firearms at the bor­der.
