Fire call leads to 337 charges against a Pickering man after 33 guns.

A Pickering man is facing more than 300 weapons-related charges after firefighters responding to a carbon monoxide alarm at a home in a community east of Toronto found something suspicious.

Firefighters who went to the Pickering, ON home yesterday called police after spotting an unknown substance in the basement.

Police say officers aided by an OPP clandestine lab team, located an unidentified substance along with 33 guns and other prohibited devices, such as overcapacity magazines.

The charges include careless storage of a firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm and possession of a restricted or prohibited firearm.

Police spokeswoman Jodi MacLean says the substance found in the home has been sent for analysis.
