Several firearms, ammo, a prohibited weapon and stolen property were seized from a home in Beausejour, Man., following a tip from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), Mounties say.

RCMP say the raid happened on Dec. 9, after the force learned CBSA had seized a “prohibited device,” which an RCMP spokesperson says was a suppressor.

Members of the East District Crime Reduction Enforcement Team and the National Weapons Enforcement Support Team were involved in serving the warrant on Fifth Street North in Beausejour.

Mounties say a 23-year-old man who lives at the home was arrested and later released.

He’s facing several firearm and property-related charges, along with importing a prohibited device.
