Guns were discovered after a report of a B&E on West Fraser Road

Quesnel RCMP found loaded firearms in a vehicle on West Fraser Road on Sunday (April 15).

At 3:18 a.m. on April 15, police recieved a report of a break & enter in progress in the 1100 block of West Fraser Road, an RCMP statement says.

RCMP officers discovered a vehicle and its occupants parked at the residence, but no evidence of a break & enter was found following an investigation.
