A man has been charged after walking into a business on Main Street, Morris, and behaving erratically with a handgun in the waistband of his pants.

It is believed that the male’s wild behavior was the product of intoxicating drugs and though he did not hurt or threaten anyone, the firearm was noticeable.

Morris RCMP were contacted soon after the man entered the building. While they were still on their way, the man was asked to wait in an office until he could be assisted by an employee.

When police officers arrived, they set up a perimeter around the building while its occupants exited safely. They proceeded to enter the facility and were able to take the man into custody without incident.

RCMP later identified the firearm as an airsoft BB gun.

The 30-year-old male from Morris has been charged with Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose, Carrying a Concealed Weapon and Failing to Comply with Undertaking.
