Teamwork by police lead to arrests, gun seizure

Greater Victoria police agencies worked together to arrest three men and recover a gun, ammunition and a bulletproof vest.

Multiple police agencies in Greater Victoria worked together Thursday night in taking down a man believed to have a gun.

Members of the Saanich and Victoria police department’s, including officers with canine units from both municipalities, converged on James Bay to arrest a 24-year-old Oak Bay man wanted on a warrant.

They found the suspect along with two associates in the 300-block of Menzies Street. All three men fled the scene when police arrived but were quickly located and arrested a few blocks away.

Police found a firearm, ammunition and a bullet proof vest and all three men could be facing criminal charges. The trio will appear in court later today.
