On November 8th, 2021, Port Alberni RCMP executed a search warrant on a private residence in south Port Alberni. A firearm that was recovered in a criminal investigation in another jurisdiction was linked to the resident who had not reported it as lost or stolen. Offence related property including four long guns and two handguns were seized, the investigation continues.

Port Alberni RCMP would like to remind firearms licence holders that it is an offence under the Criminal Code to fail to report your gun lost or stolen. As well, there is a responsibility of the firearm owner if they are selling, giving or trading a firearm to confirm that the recipient has a valid Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL).
