Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - Just halfway through the Manitoba Gun and Ammunition Amnesty program, the Brandon Police say 14 firearms and a box of ammunition have been turned in.

The unwanted firearms have not been as news worthy as some other police forces across the province.

In Portage, an old military bomb was turned in to police, while in Winnipeg, an old cannonball was picked up.

Police are asking residents not to bring their unwanted weapons to the police station, instead asking them to contact police, and officers will seize the weapons from the residents home.

The amnesty lasts until the end of June.
