Man Convicted of Weapons Offences to be Sentenced in 2019


Sentencing for a second man arrested on Highway 3 with a cache of weapons in a vehicle will face sentencing in 2019.

 Satvir Singh, 23, of Windsor has admitted guilt to three weapons offences including possession of a prohibited weapon.

The charges stem from what emergency responders found in a vehicle following a head-on crash April 26, 2017.

In court, details of the weapons found in the vehicle were read into the record.

Singh was the driver of a Lexus where passenger Tariq Elamin was also arrested.

In addition to the details of the weapons heard in Elamin's trial, court also heard from a report done by the Centre for Forensic Sciences.

It indicated the serial numbers on the sawed-off shotgun and 22-calibre rifle had been removed.

Singh's lawyer Maria Carroccia has asked for a pre-sentence report to be done.

Submissions on sentencing will be made before Justice Lloyd Dean in January.
