UPDATE as of 5:22 pm – The incident is now over.  Police say the incident started shortly after 3 p.m. when crime reduction officers tried to pull-over a person well known to police.  The suspect then fled in the vehicle.  The individual does not have a drivers license.  The RCMP did not pursue the vehicle and instead went to the suspects home on 92 street.

At the home, the RCMP arrested two individuals, one with outstanding warrants and also seized an AK47, shotgun and an ornamental sword.  The suspect who fled from police was not at the home and the RCMP are still searching for him.

Since charges have not been laid against the individual, the RCMP cannot release the suspect’s name.
