Officers said two BB guns and BBs’ were seized.

The force said Garcha was released and is scheduled to appear in court in January.

“Police would like to remind the public that although BB’ guns are legal to possess, great care should be used when using them,” officers said in a news release.

Police said BB guns are “almost impossible to tell the difference from a real firearm.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
