Border officials in Alberta have seized a cache of guns hidden inside a vehicle trying to get into Canada.

Officers found 75 firearms, including 48 handguns, stowed inside a pickup truck at the Coutts crossing on Tuesday.

Officials say it is the largest handgun seizure in the port's history.

The driver of the truck told officers he was travelling to Alaska and was not carrying any firearms.

RCMP arrested 54-year-old George Foster of Florida.

He faces 10 charges and is to appear in court in Lethbridge on Thursday.
