Party goer points rifle

A 32 year old Camperdown man will appear in court next month accused of pointing a rifle at another person during a New Year’s Eve party. The Mounties received a complaint January 1st around 2:30 am that a man had pointed a rifle at another person during a New Year's Eve party. A search of the man's residence January 6th turned up a stash of weapons including three military style rifles, several handguns, other long guns and a quantity of ammunition. The man has been released on conditions until his court appearance in Bridgewater February 24th.
