Arrested For 3D Printing Guns

WINNIPEG - A man in the RM of Hanover is accused of using a 3D printer to make guns.

34 year old man faces charges of making false statements, manufacturing a restricted firearm, possessing a firearm without a licence and failing to follow firearm storage regulations.

The Canada Border Services Agency says their investigation began last September when a suspicious package was intercepted at a mail processing centre in Mississauga, Ontario.

The package was destined for southeastern Manitoba from the US and contained undeclared firearm components including metal parts and inserts commonly used to reinforce 3D-printed handguns.
