File # 2017-16764

Two men arrested following a weapons report yesterday afternoon.

On Tuesday May 30th, 2017 at approximately 3:30 PM, the Prince George RCMP received a report of hand gun in a vehicle driving near the corner of 15th Avenue and Highway 97 in Prince George.

Officers attended the area and began looking for the vehicle involved. A few minutes later, the vehicle was located in a restaurant drive through near the corner of Massey Drive and Westwood Drive in the City.

The two occupants were arrested and taken into police custody. A replica handgun was located and seized by police. As the replica firearm was not pointed at someone or used in an offence, the occupants were released without charge. The replica will be destroyed.

Police wish to remind the public that replica guns are treated by the public and the police as real, until proven otherwise. Please refrain from possessing these items in public places.
