Mission RCMP quickly nab gun-toting suspects

Two people arrested, weapon appears to be a pellet gun

Half a dozen police cars came screeching to a halt on Lougheed Highway, across from the Mission McDonald’s after a call came in about a pair of suspects, one male and one female, walking around with a rifle.

The incident took place today (Wednesday, Jan. 23) at about 2:40 p.m.

Mission RCMP, with guns drawn, immediately secured the area and began to search for the suspects.

One officer ran down the side of the highway with a rifle asking witnesses if they saw the suspects.

A short time later, the suspects were discovered, apparently in possession of a pellet or BB gun.

The duo have been placed under arrest and the investigation is continuing.
