A Porters Lake man has been charged in a weapons smuggling investigation.

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) says its officers at mail centres in Toronto and Vancouver intercepted firearm suppressors last August.

That led to the search of a Porters Lake residence in Sept. 2019. The CBSA says various weapons and prohibited devices were seized, including a 3D printed gun.

Earlier this month, Brian Burke Taylor was charged with offences under the Customs Act and the Criminal Code of Canada.

He's facing 23 charges in relation to the importation, possession, manufacture, and unsafe storage of various firearms and prohibited devices.

The 68-year-old appeared in court yesterday.
