A 32-year-old Regina man is facing a number of gun charges after a search warrant turned up a number of firearms.

The warrant was executed at an apartment on the 300 block of Cornwall Street on Tuesday evening. No one was home at the time, but four guns and ammunition were found in the apartment.

Police have confirmed that three of the guns came from a break-in at a business on Park Street on Feb. 26 where 12 long guns were stolen.

While police were searching the home, a second team of officers located the resident of the apartment and arrested him.

Michael Francis Mayer, 32, has been charged with a number of gun related charges and possession of property obtained by a crime.

He made his first court appearance on Wednesday morning.
