Police say they found a Taser disguised as a cellphone in the car of a 19-year-old male in Spryfield early yesterday.

Police say they pulled the young man over in the 300 block of Herring Cove Road because his vehicle didn’t have visible licence plates. Upon further inspection, they say bear spray was also found inside the vehicle.

The driver, who is from Beaver Bank, was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of a prohibited weapon. He was to appear in court yesterday.
