A 16-year old male youth has been arrested on multiple charges including Pointing a Firearm, Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose and Carry a Concealed Weapon following an incident in the 300 Block of 2nd Street. The incident happened at approximately 6:40 pm on Wednesday evening when the neighbour called police saying the teen had pointed a gun his way. As police arrived they witnessed the youth getting into a vehicle, so they organized a traffic stop, at which point the suspect was taken into custody. A sawed off black powder gun was recovered at the suspects residence, after a search warrant had been obtained. The youth was released with a promise to appear in court in May.
