File # 2021-11432

This morning at approximately 3:30 a.m. Surrey RCMP received a weapons report at a residence in the 10600 block of King George Blvd. Upon arrival, police were able to evacuate several people from the residence, eventually, all but one male was accounted for. During repeated call out attempts the male was not coming out of the residence. The Lower Mainland District Emergency Response Team (ERT) and Police Dog Service were deployed to the scene and after further unsuccessful negotiations ERT and PDS members entered the residence. After a few moments a male was located inside one of the bedrooms hiding from police. The male was arrested at 8:40 a.m. with the assistance of PDS and taken into custody. The suspect adult male was taken to local area hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries sustained during the arrest, injuries consistent with Police Service Dog contact. He was eventually released from Hospital and brought to Surrey Cells where he will await weapons charges.

The residence is currently being held for security while the Surrey RCMP General Investigations Unit applies for a warrant to search the home for evidence to further this investigation. By 9:15 a.m, perimeter scene was collapsed and roads opened.
