An Abbostford Police investigation into the theft of numerous firearms from an Abbotsford resident led to a dramatic police takedown at a Richmond firm last week.

On Oct 16, an emergency response team, estimated to be 20-strong, descended on Hodder Tugboat Co. at 11171 River Rd., where with their weapons drawn, they arrested a member of a boat crew around 5:45 p.m.

A man in his early 30s was taken into custody, but after being questioned, he was released without charges, according to Abbotsford Police Const. Paul Walker.

The investigation is ongoing and remains active, Walker said.
