A boat and engine were also found, which were stolen from Chemainus last year.

Cst. Maury Tyre of the Campbell River RCMP says they’re pleased the incident ended peacefully.

“Recovering illegal firearms and being able to return high-value stolen property, is definitely a success for our team of dedicated officers,” says Tyre.
