File # 23-4683

Burnaby RCMP responded to a weapons call in the 1600-block of Ingleton Avenue that resulted in the arrest of 5 individuals.

On February 9, just after 11:30 a.m., Burnaby RCMP frontline officers responded to a report of a weapons complaint in the 1600-block of Ingleton Avenue.

Police located the complainant, who was not injured, at scene. Information at the time indicated the suspect had fled to a residence in the 3900-block of Gravely Street.

With the assistance of Vancouver Emergency Response Team, three men were taken into custody outside of the residence while two suspects remained inside the residence.

To ensure public safety, Integrated Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team (IERT), Integrated Lower Mainland Police Dog Service (IPDS) and Burnaby RCMP officers secured the scene and restricted traffic in the area. Efforts were made to call the individuals out of the residence and one female was taken into custody upon exiting. Later, just before 5:00 p.m, the fifth suspect was taken into custody after IERT made entry to the residence.

The area is no longer restricted.

This incident concluded with no injuries to the public or police and is currently still under investigation, said Corporal Laura Hirst, with the Burnaby RCMP. We would like to thank the public for their patience as officers secured the area for some time. Police will remain on scene as the investigation is ongoing.
