Tatla Lake Resident Sentenced in 2013 massive weapons seizure

A Tatla Lake resident, charged following a massive weapons seizure in 2013, has now been sentenced in Provincial Court in Williams Lake.

Gerald Peter Kirby, 63 at the time of his arrest, has been given a 6-month conditional sentence which means it will be served in the community as well as a 10-year firearms prohibition.

Kirby pled guilty to 9 counts including possession of a weapon for the purpose of trafficking, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm knowing its possession is unauthorized and careless use of a firearm in terms of storage.

13 other charges were stayed.

The charges stem from a weapons seizure at his property in August of 2013.
