Concerns are being expressed over Shelburne's understrength RCMP detachment.

Kings District RCMP arrested one man Feb. 12 on New Minas’ Commercial Street outside of Evangeline Middle School.

After receiving reports of someone walking with a long gun in the area in the middle of the afternoon, police investigated, Const. Blair MacMurtery said.

“The investigation revealed that the male was carrying a pellet gun to his friend's place,” MacMurtery added. He said two males were stopped by police initially, but only one was arrested.

Buses were delayed for a few minutes, he confirmed.

There will be no charges related to the incident.
