RCMP discovered a freaky assortment of weapons and criminal tools on Thursday.

Responding to a domestic violence call in Porter Creek yesterday morning, police noticed some unusual objects in a vehicle parked in front.

A bullet-proof vest, a gas mask, glass-breaking tools, a baseball bat, bear spray, a semi-automatic rifle clip, ammunition, a mask and a prohibited weapon were all found in a subsequent search of the vehicle, say police.

People living in the house were interrogated, but no charges have been laid in relation to the domestic violence call or the weapons cache, said Sgt. Don Rogers, an RCMP spokesperson.

An investigation related to the seized objects is underway.

Police are not saying what kind of prohibited weapon they found, said Rogers.

He did say the weapon isn’t necessarily a gun. (James Munson)
