Police say missing airguns recovered during raid of home in Kitchener
Waterloo Regional Police raided a home in the Rosemount neighbourhood of Kitchener on Thursday in connection with a break and enter investigation.
Police say the investigation of the break and enter at a business on Victoria Street in Kitchener led them to the house. Police say several airsoft guns were taken from the store.
Police used a warrant to enter a home on Bruce Street where they recovered three of the airsoft guns.
“These type of airsoft guns can be used in crime and they look real so people might not know. That’s the risk to public safety,” Const. Ashley Dietrich said.
“It’s good that they are off the streets.”
Police say they are still looking for the rest of the airsoft guns taken from the store but would not say how many were still unaccounted for.
A 38-year-old Kitchener man was arrested and has been charged with multiple offences including break and enter theft, possession of stolen property, possession of stolen credit cards and possession of break and enter tools.
