Possession of a weapon obtained by commission of offence is a serious charge. According to the criminal code, a person who commits a criminal offence while in possession of a firearm, prohibited weapon, restricted weapon, prohibited device or ammunition that they know was obtained by the commission of a crime or by an act or omission can be charged with possession of a weapon by commission of offence. If convicted, you can face up to 10 years in prison.
