Halifax Police say stolen firearms recovered during an arrest

Police in Halifax say a number of firearms were stolen Wednesday evening during a break and enter, and then were later recovered during an arrest.

Investigators say they responded to a break and enter of a residence on the 63-hundred block of London Street in the city at 5:40 p.m.

During the investigation they learned long-barreled firearms had gone missing.

Police recovered the four guns when they arrested a man last night and he is scheduled to appear in Halifax court on Thursday to face charges in the matter.
