SURREY, B.C. — The Peace Arch border crossing was closed for two hours last night as border agents investigated a motorist carrying four guns and a possible explosive device.

Truckers were inconvenienced as Customs officers closed one of the busiest crossings between Canada and the U.S., diverting border traffic while the investigation was conducted.

Police later said it appeared the four-wheeler was suffering from a mental illness.

“At this time, we don’t believe that he had any malicious intent,” Cpl. Steven Han of the Surrey RCMP said in a statement.
