A man from Alaska who was caught with guns at the North Portal, Sask., border point has pleaded guilty to smuggling.

Jeffrey Leo Webster, 55, who's from the town of Soldotna in that state, was sentenced to four days time served and given a $6,000 fine. The case was dealt with Monday in Regina provincial court.
On January 10, Canada Border Services Agency officers examined Webster's vehicle and seized two handguns, three long guns and two replica handguns.

It's the second gun seizure at a Saskatchewan border point in recent weeks. A 25-year-old man from Miami, Fla., was stopped at North Portal on Dec. 31, 2013.

Officials said the items seized included an AR-15 assault rifle, a handgun, a set of brass knuckles, a brass knuckle knife, four high-capacity magazines and 15 grams of what was believed to be marijuana.

The Miami man's next court appearance is Jan. 20.
