Another court appearance for Dauphin man on weapon charges

A Dauphin man remains in custody, following his court appearance Tuesday on charges stemming from a traffic stop in the city last month.

On the night of June 13th, RCMP spotted a vehicle speeding northbound on Main Street, and pulled it over, findng two men inside, along with the strong smell of alcohol and a large bag of unmarked cigarettes.

Officers also found a homemade gun with a bayonet attached, along with used and unused ammunition, a number of cell phones, and a quantity of cash.

The driver, 37-year-old Christopher Bilay faces a variety of charges, and he’ll be back in Dauphin Court on July 18th.
