Two youths arrested, replica firearms seized in Shelburne


Two youths were arrested and replica firearms were seized following an incident in Shelburne last week.

Officers responded around 12:35 p.m. to a report of two youths waving a firearm in a vehicle near a school on Woodlawn Drive.

Investigators say there were no injuries in the incident, and a 14-year old and 17-year old from Shelburne County were arrested a short-time later.

Police say they also seized nine replica firearms, including the one used in the incident.

The youths were released on conditions and are scheduled to appear in Shelburne Youth Court in November.
