Some of the 100 guns seized by RCMP from a home in Chebogue, N.S., on Monday after the homeowner misdialed 911. (Submitted by RCMP)

RCMP stumbled upon 100 unsecured guns earlier this week while checking on a home in Nova Scotia's Yarmouth County after the resident misdialed 911, police say.

A 73-year-old man was arrested and faces charges of unsafe storage of a firearm, and police seized all 100 guns, RCMP said in a news release on Wednesday.

The "unusual discovery" was made Monday around 11 a.m. AT while police were checking to ensure there was no emergency at his Chebogue home.

So, someone erroneously dialed 911 and the RCMP found this cache of arms. Interesting, I have no idea what their gun laws are.

Maybe the only charges is "unsafe storage of a firearm".
