Two weapons complaints in Cape Breton Thursday night kept police busy.

The first incident happened around 11 p.m. when members of the Cape Breton Regional Police/RCMP Integrated Street Crime Unit executed a search warrant at a home on Brookside Street in Glace Bay.

During the search, police seized a sawed-off shotgun. A 29-year-old man was arrested and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday to face charges of careless use of a firearm and unauthorized possession of a weapon.

At around 11:15 p.m., police were called to another unrelated complaint that a man had pulled out a handgun inside of a club in Glace Bay.

The man then left the club and went to a home on Duke Street. Police surrounded the Glace Bay home and a negotiator was brought in.

At around 5 a.m. Friday the 43-year-old man came out of the house and surrendered to police. The man remains in custody while police continue their investigation.

No one was injured in either incident.
