Man faces 37 new gun charges

A Langley, B.C., man now faces many more charges related to alleged trafficking of firearms and other weapons.

Sgt. Lindsey Houghton, with B.C.'s Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, says an additional 37 charges have been laid against Bradley Friesen, who faces a total of 46 counts.

The 37-year-old was charged last week with nine counts related to trafficking, possession, and importing or exporting of unauthorized weapons.

Houghton says the additional charges laid Friday include 10 counts of possession contrary to a prohibition order, six counts of careless use of a firearm related to storage regulations, and multiple counts linked to trafficking, possession and importing or exporting of weapons.

Numerous weapons, including assault rifles, a sub-machine gun, many rounds of ammunition and silencers were found during a search of a Langley home.

Friesen remains in custody in Surrey, awaiting his next court date.
