A man is facing weapons-related charges after his arrest in Williams Lake on Monday, April 26.

North District RCMP Cpl. Madonna Saunderson, District Advisory NCO, said RCMP responded at 8:58 a.m. to a report of a man putting a long rifle into the trunk of a black Pontiac Grand Am in the 600 block of Atwood Place.

The complainant reported there were several people in the car.
