Corey Hurren Charged
The Canadian Armed Forces member facing a long list of charges after breaching the grounds at Rideau Hall last week allegedly had multiple firearms in his possession at the time and is accused of uttering a threat against the prime minister, according to recently filed court documents.
According to information sworn by an RCMP officer, Hurren allegedly had the following loaded firearms with him:
An M14 rifle.
A Hi-Standard revolver, a restricted firearm for which Hurren allegedly did not have a license.
A Lakefield Mossberg shotgun.
A Dominion Arms Grizzly shotgun.
Hurren also allegedly had a prohibited high-capacity magazine.
He’s also accused of uttering a threat or conveying a threat to “cause death or bodily harm” to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, according to the court document.
Most of the 22 charges are firearm-related; they include careless use of a firearm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm and unauthorized possession in a motor vehicle.
Police say Hurren, a Manitoba resident who serves as a Canadian Ranger, drove his truck through the pedestrian gate at 1 Sussex Drive at around 6:30 a.m. ET Thursday morning and then headed toward the ground’s greenhouse on foot with what appeared to be a firearm.
Police say officers made visual contact with him about 13 minutes later and tried talking to him soon after. Hurren responded at 6:53, according to the RCMP, and was arrested almost 90 minutes later.
While the charge details provide more information about what Hurren allegedly had in his possession, questions about his actions linger.
Police have said that Hurren, a 46-year-old on-duty member of the Canadian military reserves who also has a gourmet sausage business, drove from Manitoba and crashed his truck through the gate at 6.30 am on Thursday. The truck was disabled and he was spotted with a rifle before being contained in a greenhouse on the sprawling property in Ottawa. Police began talking to him and he was arrested two hours later.
Trudeau lives on the grounds of the property where Canada’s governor-general resides but was not home at the time. The post of the governor-general, currently held by Julie Payette, is a mostly ceremonial position. Payette also was not home at the time.
