Two men are facing weapons charges after officers with the Canadian Border Services Agency executed separate search warrants in the west end of Halifax earlier this week.

The agency says 19-year-old Conor Lively and 19-year-old Craig Redmond, both of Halifax, were arrested Wednesday after officers carried out a search under the Customs Act in relation to the suspected smuggling of prohibited weapons.

The charges range from smuggling prohibited weapons to importation of prohibited weapons.

Lively has been released and is due in court next month while Redmond will seek bail next week.

The agency says it is working with the RCMP and Halifax Regional Police to investigate the matter.
