First crossbow seized near G20 security zone


A man has been arrested near Scott Street and The Esplanade for driving a vehicle with an arsenal of weapons.

Police seized a crossbow, five arrows, a sledgehammer, a pick-axe, a chainsaw, a baseball bat, a gasoline canister, and a cola bottle from the driver's silver Hyundai.

The vehicle was outfitted with a homemade steel container tied to the roof and a bumper tied on with string. Police also found a copy of "100 ways to Make Money on the Internet," in the car.

Too bad it wasn't a copy of "100 Ways to Intercept World Summits." I think Page 1 says, "Don't put a suspicious-looking homemade artillery case on your car roof."
