WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg man is facing dozens of charges after police seized 73 prohibited, unregistered and restricted firearms from a home in the city.
Police say the began investigating in July after the Canada Border Services Agency intercepted a prohibited firearm suppressor — commonly known as a silencer — that had been sent to an address in Winnipeg from China.
The investigation led to a warrant to search a Winnipeg home on Oct. 16.
Officers found 73 firearms, including a Glock 18 handgun and suppressor, a Finnish M44 submachine gun and an AK-47 rifle.
They also seized more than 10,000 rounds of ammunition, numerous exploding targets, as well as pyrotechnics and body armour.
Andrew Michael Krywonizka, who is 41, is facing 70 firearms-related charges and has been detained in custody.
