CBSA seizure at Osoyoos port of entry leads to $7,500 fine for smuggling over-capacity gun magazines

PENTICTON, BC, Oct. 19, 2023 /CNW/ - The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is committed to keeping our communities safe.

Today, the CBSA announced the conviction of Joby Stuart Bishop, a resident of Carbon, Alberta, for smuggling over-capacity gun magazines.

On December 28, 2022, Bishop was attempting to enter Canada at the Osoyoos port of entry, when he was referred for secondary examination. During their inspection, Border Services Officers discovered three prohibited over-capacity magazines. Mr. Bishop was arrested and the CBSA's Pacific Region Criminal Investigations Section began an investigation.

On October 5, 2023, Bishop pleaded guilty in Penticton Provincial Court to one count of smuggling under the Customs Act, Section 159(1). He was fined $7,500 and issued a two-year firearms prohibition under Section 110 of the Criminal Code.


"CBSA officers at the Osoyoos border crossing and our criminal investigators work hard to keep our communities safe. Over-capacity gun magazines are now off the streets, and the accused has been held accountable."

- Derek Watson, Director, Okanagan and Kootenay District, Canada Border Services Agency
