Moose Jaw officers were able to get illegal guns off the roads as part of an ongoing investigation last month.

After finding an illegally traded firearm in a vehicle during a January 22nd traffic stop, the Moose Jaw Crime Reduction Team executed two search warrants. One for a vehicle, and one for a house where officers seized a loaded firearm and ammunition, resulting in a slate of charges for a 36-year-old man.

Matthew Pacheco of Willow Bunch was then arrested and is facing nine charges, including one count of weapons trafficking, two counts of possession of a firearm knowing possession is unauthorized, three counts of careless use of a firearm, one count possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle and two counts unauthorized possession of a firearm.

His court appearance is set for March 14 in Coronach.
