Oshawa Man Facing Prohibited Weapons Charges
A 48-year-old Oshawa man is facing nine charges after Canada Border Services Agency in Vancouver intercepted a package containing prohibited weapons.
Provincial police say the package from Singapore contained two stun guns disguised as flashlights and was destined for a residence in Oshawa.
Investigators say a search of the home resulted in the seizure of another stun gun, seven knives, and an expandable baton -- all prohibited weapons under the Criminal Code.
John Michael Rolph is charged with knowingly importing prohibited weapons, possession of a prohibited device, and possession of weapons for a dangerous purpose.
Rolph is to appear in an Oshawa court on Sept. 12.
