Two Teens Arrested Following Bradford Weapons Call

Bradford | by Matt Sitler  

Officers contained the area and two nearby schools were placed in a hold and secure as a precaution.

Two teens have been arrested after South Simcoe Police responded to weapons call.

Around noon Tuesday, police heard that two males had some type of gun under a bridge in the West Park and Miller Park Avenue area of Bradford.

Officers arrived, contained the area and two nearby schools were placed in a hold and secure as a precaution.

The males were arrested without incident and police seized a replica handgun.

An 18-year-old Bradford man was charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. A 17-year-old Bradford youth was referred to a diversion program.

Police remind that possessing fake guns can result in real criminal charges.

Imitations include airsoft, BB or pellet guns, prop guns, paintball guns, and even toy or novelty guns.

Replica firearms can be indistinguishable from real guns.

Officers will treat replica firearm calls as real until they can prove the weapon is not a threat.
