Gun-toting drinker pleads guilty in Kelowna

A man arrested at a Rutland pub with a loaded handgun tucked in the back of his pants pleaded guilty to some of the weapons charges laid against him.

Ryan Bradley Allin was 29 when police arrested him at the Willow Park Pub on Dec. 15, 2012.

RCMP say he had a loaded .45 calibre pistol tucked in his pants and a knife hanging from a chain around his neck.

A second handgun was later seized from his home, RCMP said last year.

Allin was to go to trial Monday on more than a dozen charges, but pleaded guilty to four weapons offences instead. Those charges include carrying a concealed prohibited weapon or ammunition, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a prohibited weapon with ammunition and possession of a firearm contrary to order.

A pre-sentence report has been ordered and Allin’s case is scheduled to return to court in December to set a sentencing date.
