A Toronto man has been arrested and is facing a number of firearms offences following a traffic stop in Mississauga on Sunday, March 31.

Peel Regional Police pulled a vehicle over in the area of Argentia Road and Winston Churchill Boulevard, and during the traffic stop, found marijuana readily available to the driver as well as a Taurus G2C 9mm handgun and ammunition.

Jahvar Green, a 21-year-old from Toronto, is facing 10 charges, eight of which are firearms related. Also included in the 10 charges are driving with cannabis readily available and failure to comply with condition of undertaking or recognizance.

Peel police said the failure to comply charge stems from an assault causing bodily harm charge Green was facing in Toronto from November. At the time, he was released on an undertaking with a specific condition of not possessing any firearms, said police.

Green was scheduled to appear at a bail hearing at the Ontario Court of Justice on Monday, April 1, to answer to the charges against him.

Anyone with information on the incident can contact Peel’s 11 Division criminal investigations bureau at 905-453-2121, ext. 1133 or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
