Trial begins for three men charged with possession of restricted weapons

April 22, 2014 - 12:55 PM

KAMLOOPS – Today was the first day in a Kamloops Supreme Court trial for three men charged with possession of a restricted firearm and ammunition without a proper license.

Justice Jennifer Duncan will oversee the trial of Rick Herd and Jordan McIntosh, both born 1984, and Joel McLean, born 1987. Each faces three charges which include possession of a restricted firearm without a license. The three are charged in connection to a duffel bag which allegedly contained a sawed off shotgun, a handgun, ammunition, and brass knuckles.

Crown prosecutor Neil Flanagan says he plans to call on a weapons specialist in court to verify that the weapons found in the duffel bag were restricted.
McIntosh and McLean remain in custody.

The trial is expected to continue this week.
