BB gun found, men arrested

Two people were arrested over the weekend after police responded to a report of a man with a firearm at Ala Kebab.

The 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call from a security guard at around 2.25am on Saturday reporting that a man was at the location with a gun.

Police arrested two 18-year-old men on suspicion of possession of an unlicensed firearm. A search of the area resulted in the recovery of a BB gun.

The two men remained in police custody at press time.

Police reminded residents of the dangers of being in possession of BB guns, air weapons, imitation weapons and replica guns. Officers said that armed police must respond to reports of weapons and treat the situation as if it is a real gun.
