Owner of ammunition found in Gatineau apartment comes forward
Some 50 to 75 people living nearby vacated their homes after what looked like artillery shells and large calibre bullets were discovered in a vacated apartment unit on Louvre Street.
On Thursday, Gatineau police sources told Radio-Canada the former tenant's son had come forward and is co-operating with investigators.
Police said criminal charges are unlikely.
A team from the Canadian Army came to check the devices and deemed them not a threat, Gatineau police said.
Police said Thursday they and the Army continue to investigate the legality of having these weapons in a home.
