Police respond to call for machine gun and sword; weapons not as dangeorus as they appeared
Aug 18 2012Police responded to a call Thursday night when someone reported seeing two men carrying weapons on Goldstream Avenue.
After locating the 17-year-old and 18-year-old at Aldwyn Road, police found that the weapons — described by the complainant as a long sword and machine gun — were actually a practice blunt sword and paint ball gun.
“We assume weapons are real until proven otherwise,” Cpl. Scott Braes said. “We err on the side of safety first.”
He added that police spoke to the Langford men about the situation but no further action was taken.
