A Quebec man was arrested and three rifles seized after shooting a rifle while staying at an Oliver campground on Sunday morning.
The RCMP responded to an agricultural worker’s camp on Secrest Hill Road at 7 a.m. The report about the shots fired came into police between 3 and 4 a.m. that morning, according to Sgt. Don Wrigglesworth.
A 29-year-old camper from Quebec was arrested without incident for careless use of a firearm at the campground.
Three firearms were seized along with ammunition.
No injuries were reported, and the man was found to have a valid firearms license.
The situation is now being reviewed by the Chief Firearms Officer for a decision.
Following his arrest, the man was released from custody and escorted back to retrieve his belongings as he had been evicted from the campground.
