Dufferin Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) uniform members along with the assistance of the Major Crime Unit exemplified true teamwork. In a joint effort officers seized an illegal firearm and in doing so took another dangerous gun off the streets.

Last Friday (Aug. 20), at approximately 8:05 p.m., uniform officers attended a residence in Shelburne for an unwanted party. The call led officers into a weapons investigation which resulted in a collaborative effort with members of the Dufferin Major Crime Unit to obtain a search warrant for a firearm in the early morning hours. The search warrant was granted and the illegal firearm, magazine and ammunition was located and seized.
