Authorities intercept package with stun guns headed for city
A Hamilton man is facing weapons charges after border officers intercepted two flashlight stun guns destined for a city address.
Canada Border Services Agency officers intercepted the package, which was travelling from China to Hamilton, on June 19 and alerted RCMP. Investigators allege the attempted delivery was one in “a series of prohibited weapons importations attempted by the same person.” RCMP, with the assistance of CBSA, executed a warrant at a Hamilton residence Thursday and arrested one person. Four additional flashlight stun guns and two switch blades were seized. Fadi Bashori, 34, is charged with importing a prohibited weapon and possession for the purpose of trafficking a prohibited weapon.
