Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are investigating after a large drone carrying several handguns was found stuck in a tree in southwestern Ontario.

Lambton County OPP says the drone was found on Friday near Port Lambton, Ont., in a tree along the St. Clair River, which runs between Canada and the United States.

Police say a bag attached to the drone contained 11 handguns.

Force spokesman Jamie Bydeley says in an email that the handguns found were mostly the kind that is prohibited in Canada.

Recently, Lambton OPP found that drones are being used to carry the prohibited guns over from the United States,” a statement read. 

No arrests have been made.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them.
