A Waverley man is facing several charges after a car crash in Goffs Monday.
RCMP were called to Old Guysborough Rd. at around 9 p.m. after an Audi A3 ended up in a ditch.
A witness who stopped to help said the driver stuffed a firearm into a bag before asking for a ride to a spot with cell service.
The witness complied and then returned the man to the scene, where the driver retrieved a second bag from the crashed vehicle.
Responding officers searched both bags and say they seized over $2,000, cannabis, hash, a 12-gauge shotgun and ammunition.
Aaron Matthew Poole, 28, was arrested and is now facing the following charges:
- Careless use of a firearm (two counts)
- Possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose
- Carrying a concealed weapon
- Unauthorized possession of a firearm
- Possession of a firearm while knowing its possession is unauthorized
- Unauthorized possession in a motor vehicle
- Possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition
- Possession contrary to an order (two counts)
He appeared in Dartmouth Provincial Court yesterday and Mounties say the investigation is ongoing.
