Semi-automatic rifles seized at Woodstock border crossing: RCMP

A 56-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman have been charged after police say two semi-automatic rifles were seized at the Woodstock, N.B., border crossing.

The RCMP say Canada Border Services Agency officers found the rifles and prohibited overcapacity magazines when the pair arrived at the border crossing Wednesday evening.

Mounties later searched a home in Teeds Mills, near Woodstock, and seized several firearms and ammunition, along with some cash.
