On Saturday, May 27, around 7:45 p.m., a guest at Monte Carlo Inn, on 374 South Service Road East, checked into their room and observed what appeared to be a handgun.

Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) was called and, after an investigation, determined it to be an airsoft gun.

Thus, no charges were laid.

Airsoft guns, like the one in this incident, are on the list of weapons that can be surrendered as part of this year's firearms and weapons amnesty. 

This amnesty begins this Thursday, June 1, and gives Halton’s residents and businesses the chance to surrender unwanted or illegally-owned firearms, weapons and/or ammunition to the HRPS without the worry of being charged for having them.

You can also surrender:

  • Imitation firearms
  • Switchblades
  • Butterfly knives
  • Pepper spray
  • Nunchakus (Nunchucks)
  • Shurikens (Throwing Stars)
  • Push daggers
  • Knife combs
  • Crossbows
  • Spiked wristbands
  • Batons
  • Blowguns
