A Kingston man faces charges after police said two rifles and break-in tools were recovered during a traffic stop. 

Police said a car with a broken back window was pulled over on Old Mill Road around 1:30 a.m. Thursday and officers noticed an assault rifle sitting on the back seat. The man didn't have a valid firearms license, according to police, who later found a second gun and learned the driver's license had been suspended. 

A 27-year-old man is charged with two counts of possession of a restricted firearm without holding a licence, two counts of possession of a restricted firearm knowingly not holding a licence, possession of break-in instruments and other firearm offences. He also faces two charges of driving while suspended.
