‎On Wednesday evening, RCMP say two people arrived at the Woodstock port of entry. CBSA officers referred them for a secondary examination which resulted in the discovery of the firearms and prohibited ammo clips. The driver and passenger were arrested and taken into police custody.

RCMP say 56-year-old David Polchies and 46-year-old Sharon Weeks, both of Teeds Mills, N.B., appeared in Woodstock Provincial Court on Thursday. They were both charged with importing restricted firearms under the Criminal Code.

The CBSA Enforcement and Intelligence also laid Customs Act charges for non-report, untrue statements and smuggling. Polchies and Weeks were remanded into custody until a bail hearing on Tuesday, October 10  in Woodstock Court.
