A call about a fake weapon led to the discovery of a real one.
The Guelph Police Service was called about two teens seen carrying what appeared to be a firearm at a commercial parking lot near Stone Road Mall.
Officers went to the area near Stone Road West and Edinburgh Road South around 4:55 p.m. Sunday.
They located a vehicle with two boys inside.
A search of the vehicle turned up a black imitation firearm behind the rear driver-side tire and later a spring-loaded knife.
Two 17-year-olds from Guelph are facing charges and both will appear in a Guelph courtroom on Oct. 25.
