A vigilant officer with the Owen Sound Police Service is credited with his experience and investigative skills after he followed a suspicious vehicle to a secluded area in the city of Owen Sound.  The officer observed a vehicle pull into the property where an abandonned building used to sit.    

Upon investigating, there were several loud bangs heard, which were later determined to be a shotgun being fired within the city limits.  Uniformed members of the Owen Sound Police attended to assist and the males were taken into custody.  The firearm, along with a box of ammunition, was seized. 

Three men, all from the Grey Bruce area, were charged jointly with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Careless Use of a Firearm, and Careless Storage.   One of the accused was further charged with Failing to Comply with a Weapons Prohibition Order.  The shot gun was seized as evidence.

All of the accused were held in custody pending a bail hearing on October 30th, 2023.
