Two men were arrested yesterday afternoon after police were told of a vehicle near 15th Avenue and Highway 97 whose occupants had a handgun.
The call came in around 3:30 p.m. A few minutes later, the vehicle was located in a restaurant drive-through near the corner of Massey Drive and Westwood Drive.
The two occupants were arrested and taken into police custody. A replica handgun was located and seized by police. As the replica firearm was not pointed at someone or used in an offence, the occupants were released without charge. The replica will be destroyed.
Police wish to remind the public that replica guns are treated by the public and the police as real, until proven otherwise.
