Firearms seized by Victoria police

Firearms seized by VicPD

Victoria police seized firearms, brass knuckles, a Taser and a sword after executing a search warrant last month.

Officers also arrested a man and a woman in the July 16 operation, which happened at a supportive-housing facility in the 800-block of Johnson Street.

Firearms found included a shotgun with ammunition and two handguns with ammunition, along with several replica firearms. Body armour and batons were also seized.

The man and woman face a number of recommended firearm charges.

The information was made public after a month had gone by because of “investigative reasons,” police said.

Police would like to hear from anyone with information about the case; phone 250-995-7654, extension 1. Information can also be given anonymously at Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
