RCMP have seized several firearms they say were not legally stored.

A complaint earlier this week led to a police search of a Fall River home Wednesday, where Mounties say they found multiple guns loaded and improperly stored.

Four handguns, two shotguns, four rifles, magazines and ammunition were seized form the Oakes Rd. residence.

A 49-year-old Fall River man was arrested.

He's been released on conditions and will appear in court on June 29th to face a charge of careless use of a firearm (three counts) and unsafe storage of a firearm.
