RCMP on Vancouver Island say Trevor Charles Porter was arrested last Friday after he allegedly attempted to hire a Sooke, B.C., resident to murder a Langford man.

The incident was first reported to RCMP Thursday last week.

Porter, 43, was arrested the following day. Sooke RCMP says officers obtained a warrant, searched Porter's home and found an unregistered handgun.

Porter has since been released on $25,000 bail and charged with 'counselling to commit an indictable offence' and unauthorized possession of a firearm.

He is to appear in court on February 27.
