We're told that Nolet is "now facing various charges in the Sorel judicial district."

The weapons that are found in the SPVM's photo above were allegedly stored behind a bookcase in Noulet's basement.

Beyond the firearms, ammo, and pellets that ended up being seized, $31,000 in cash was supposedly also found.

Montreal police ask that if anyone has information regarding firearms-related offences in the city call Info-Crime Montréal at 514 393-1133.
