LONDON, ONT -- No one was injured after a would-be thief fired a rifle inside a west London LCBO while attempting to break a glass case.

The incident took place at 8:45 p.m. Tuesday at the LCBO at 681 Wonderland Rd. North.

A man entered the building and approached a glass display case holding alcohol.

Police say he took out a rifle he had concealed and attempted to break the glass, firing the gun in the process.

He then fled to a vehicle waiting outside the store.

Witnesses provided police with a description of the vehicle who tracked it to the area of Oxford Street and Beaverbrook Avenue.

Two men were arrested without incident and two loaded firearms were seized.

  • Possess firearm other than restricted or prohibited firearm without holding a licence;
  • Occupy motor vehicle with firearm;

The man who was inside the store is also charged with the following offences:

  • Use/handle/store firearm carelessly;
  • Possess weapon for committing an offence;
  • Carry concealed weapon;
  • Possess firearm while prohibited; and
  • Two counts of breach of probation.

Both men are expected in court Wednesday.
