    Ottawa police seized 850 guns from a collector now they're giving them back

    Nov 13 2019
    Ottawa, Ontario



    Ottawa police say they have seized and catalogued roughly 850 legally owned guns from a local collector — a process that took two months to complete — but no charges will be laid.

    Police say they were called to the home in the city's Heron Gate neighbourhood in August and took the firearms — which included "rifles, handguns, machine guns, ammunition and various weapons," according to an Ottawa police tweet — to ensure all were legal and none had been used in a crime.

    Const. Amy Gagnon says it took five cargo vans to carry all the weapons, which she says will be returned to their rightful owner now that they've been catalogued.

    Gagnon says the collector co-operated with investigators as they double-checked the guns' legitimacy.

    She notes the Criminal Code doesn't put a limit on how many guns a private citizen can legally own.

    She says it's common for police to find collectors who have 200 to 300 guns, but 850 is highly unusual.

    Ottawa Police seize 850 guns from home

    Nov 13 2019
    Ottawa, Ontario

    Ottawa Police seized about 850 guns from a home in the Heron Gate area this summer.

    Officers found the firearms during a call for service at the home in August. The guns were registered and most of them were legally stored, police said.

    Since they were seized, the guns have been tested to determine whether any of them were used in the commission of a crime.

    “Right now we have no suspicion that any of them have been used for illegal activity,” Ottawa Police Const. Chuck Benoit said.

    He said the guns are being returned to the owners after being tested.

    Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly tweeted Wednesday that the firearm seizure was due to "a tragic incident involving mental health."

    This firearm seizure was due to a tragic incident involving mental health. The actions of our officers ensured that family was supported and that these guns did not fall into the wrong hands.

    No doubt a lot of the cops were eyeing guns from this collection for themselves . Sadly , many of the firearms would probably end up damaged and scratched as the cops probably just piled them up without any consideration for careful handling .

    Wonder if some who watched police take those guns out, and now heard owner is getting them back, are planning for some "shopping"

    I know that area and Fairley is largely subsidised housing. It improved a lot from when I was a teen when there were some close by "no go" zones. Nearby Heatherington and Ledbury used to be pretty shady but in the last several years more upscale homes were built up around it and started looking pretty nice. If the story was about a cache of illegal guns in that area I wouldn't have been surprised. I am genuinely surprised that, that many lawfully owned firearms in one residence in that area. Impressed even.

    So did someone else in the home commit suicide? The quality of reporting in the first post is pretty terrible.

    I always like how our police are always so careful in stacking private property firearms they seize. It's as if they were their own property and realise the importance of preserving their value by avoiding any damage to expensive collections.

    I think that's a photo from the collector's house, as found.
