The Canada Border Services Agency seized two prohibited guns at Emerson Tuesday after catching a 42-year-old North Carolina man lying about having them.
The CBSA said the undeclared handguns, a prohibited .38 calibre revolver found inside a cowboy boot and a prohibited .40 calibre pistol discovered under the seat of an ATV being hauled on a trailer, were both seized.
The man pleaded guilty to failing to declare them and was sentenced to three days time served. He was also fined $8,975.
The border agents have seized four prohibited firearms this year.
“Preventing illegal firearms from crossing our borders continues to be a priority for the CBSA," said Kim Scoville,
the CBSA's regional director general for the prairies.
