A B.C. man is facing criminal charges after police raided what they say was a gun-manufacturing lab using 3D printers.
In a media release Thursday, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) said arrested two men and a woman on May 28, 2021 as it raided three properties in Abbotsford and one in Aldergrove.

He has since been released on court-ordered conditions.
