A 47-year-old man has been sentenced to three months in jail after police busted a cache of weapons at a home in Winlaw last week, including guns and cross-bows.

RCMP officers from the Slocan Lake, Nakusp, and Nelson detachments executed a search warrant on Kazakoff Road after hearing that the accused had an illegal rifle.

Christopher Eldon Judd was arrested at the scene.

Cst. Shaun Foley says a search of the house uncovered a loaded SKS semi-automatic rifle with an attached bayonet and beside it, a wooden military style imitation rifle painted black.

“Numerous rounds of ammunition for the SKS rifle were found through the house, including a stripper clip with nine live rounds,” Foley says. “Two cross-bows and a three-foot (one metre) sword were found in the main bedroom.”

The search also uncovered about half a pound of packaged marijuana, an electronic scale, score sheet, and about eight grams of hashish.

Judd was charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking, possession of hashish, unauthorized possession of a firearm, and unsafe storage of a firearm.

He was remanded in custody and on Thursday pled guilty to three of the four counts and received a 90-day jail sentence to be served intermittently, a probation order, and a firearms ban.
