An American resident is facing gun charges after he tried to bring an AR-15 rifle and several other guns through the Aldergrove border crossing.
Canada Border Services Agency says the man was stopped and the guns intercepted on Feb. 10.
The guns included an AR-15, the gun notorious for its involvement in a number of recent mass shootings in the U.S., including the massacre of children in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.
Also seized was another rifle, three handguns, and seven large capacity magazines.
The U.S. traveler was charged with unauthorized possession of a firearm and possession of a restricted firearm, and with smuggling.
The CBSA did not say if the man was believed to be bringing the guns into Canada to sell.
