Three 17-year-old boys gave a passer-by a good scare Fri­day night when they pulled out a pel­let gun near Cavendish.

The RCMP said they re­ceived a re­port from a pedes­trian who came across three peo­ple bran­dish­ing a ri­fle near the Simp­sons Mill Road.

Of­fi­cers at­tended, but soon dis­cov­ered the three boys had a black long-bar­reled pel­let gun and a sling­shot.

No charges were laid, but the of­fi­cers did have a frank talk with the boys and their par­ents about the dan­gers of hav­ing the weapon out in a public area.

Po­lice said the three were not at­tend­ing the nearby Cavendish Beach Mu­sic Fes­ti­val.

The RCMP said the passerby did the right thing by con­tact­ing them about what he thought was a real weapon.
