BROCKVILLE – City police have seized a plastic handgun after a teenager was seen walking with the fake pistol on a Brockville street.

It happened just before 10 p.m. last night (May 11) on a north end street after police received a complaint about the 13-year-old carrying a gun that was “clearly visible.”

The youth was escorted home and officers spoke to both him with his father about “the seriousness of his actions.”

No charges were laid but the plastic gun was seized.
