A Hamilton man faces importing and weapons trafficking charges after police say he tried to have flashlight stun guns shipped to him from China.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Canada Border Services Agency searched a Hamilton home on July 13 after border services intercepted a package with two stun guns on June 19.

When they searched the home, RCMP say, they found three more prohibited weapons.

The stun guns were "just one of a series of prohibited weapons importations attempted by the same person," the agency said in a media release.

The RCMP arrested a 34-year-old man and charged him with importing a prohibited weapon and possession for the purpose of trafficking a prohibited weapon.
