More guns as well as ammo, cash seized at Saskatchewan border
Many of the guns caught at North Portal, border officials say
According to an annual roundup from the Canada Border Services Agency, 43 guns were seized in southern Saskatchewan last year.
That's 10 more than in 2014.
Among the items seized at North Portal were eight guns, including an automatic rifle, belonging to a traveller headed for Alaska.
Ammo also stopped at border
Quantities of contraband ammunition were seized, too, CBSA said.
Border officials stopped one man from Kentucky who was carrying 147 overcapacity magazines, most of them undeclared.
He opted to go back to the U.S.
CBSA didn't have any explanation for the increase in gun seizures.
$115,000 in cash found
Meanwhile, not all the big seizures of 2015 involved guns.
A North Dakota man was stopped carrying $115,000 in cash he hadn't declared. He was allowed to keep his money but had to pay a $2,500 penalty.
