The police found multiple weapons, including a handgun stolen from a Yukon Conservation Office in Watson Lake in 2003, in a cache somewhere in the Yukon.

They want to keep the location secret so they can catch the owners if they return, said RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Don Rogers.

He wouldn’t offer any clues on the cache’s location, except to say it is near people.

Rogers wouldn’t comment on whether the weapons might belong to a gang in the territory.

He also wouldn’t say how many or what kind of weapons were discovered, only saying there were more than three.

The police are using the national gun registry to determine where the guns came from and who might have handled them, said Rogers. (James Munson)
