Bringing not one, but two firearms camping has led to a criminal charge for a Windsor, Ontario man.
OPP Constable Phil Young says police received a call from a complainant who said someone was camping and blocking access to the lake off of Highway 108 in North Shore Township.
He says police found two people in a tent and after further investigation, two firearms were found as well as ammunition.
He says the police seized the guns and ammunition and charged the 64-year-old man with unauthorized possession of a firearm.
Young says the man is to appear in Elliot Lake count on September 2nd.
He adds the tent was also moved to allow access to the waterfront.
