On Monday, April 3, 2023 at approximately 7:45 p.m., police were dispatched to a business in the 4500 block of Gordon Road for a report of a weapons offence. Early information provided to police suggested a male had stolen items from the business, and when he was approached by two security staff, the male pulled out a bladed weapon. Nobody was physically injured in the incident.
While Patrol officers attended to the staff, members of the Aerial Support Unit located the suspect male nearby on Harbour Landing Drive. Patrol officers arrested the suspect male and he was taken into police custody. A bladed weapon was also recovered by police. As a result:
