Yarmouth County guns 8/7/19

The RCMP say 100 firearms have been seized from a home in Yarmouth County following a misdialed 911 call.

Police made the discovery while checking the home in Chebogue on Monday to ensure there was no emergency.

The RCMP say none of the 94 long guns or six handguns were properly secured.

The homeowner was arrested without incident on a charge of unsafe storage of a firearm.

He has since been released and is scheduled to appear in Yarmouth Provincial Court in October.
