FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — A man from Toronto has been charged with three offences in connection with a disturbance at the North Peace Airport on Tuesday evening.

The RCMP received a report of a disturbance at the airport in Fort St. John at around 6:20 p.m. Tuesday. Steven Page, a 51 year-old resident of Toronto, was taken into custody without incident shortly after police arrived.

Mounties had the airport secured until around 8:30 p.m. to evaluate any possible threat to other passengers. Once police were able to determine the incident was isolated, the airport was reopened.

According to Sgt. Dave Tyreman with the Fort St. John RCMP, Page appeared in Provincial Court on Wednesday after he was charged with Mischief, Uttering threats, and Assault. A judge set Page’s bail at $10,000, and as of Thursday morning, he remains in police custody.
