Drugs & Firearm Offences – Arrests: C21-35517

During the evening of February 14, 2021, members of the Guns & Gangs Unit (with the help of the Tactical Support Team and West District officers) executed a search warrant at a hotel suite in the Sargent Park area.

Soon after, officers observed two suspects attend the hotel in a taxi cab but leave upon seeing police. The pair were followed to Sargent Avenue and Strathcona Street, at which time officers attempted to stop the taxi. A male suspect began throwing items out of the taxi’s windows, and upon the vehicle coming to a stop, he fled on foot. A female was taken into custody at the cab.

Officers pursued the male, and with the assistance of AIR1, he was found attempting to hide under a truck in the 1100 block of Strathcona Street.
