ERT called out to deal with weapons complaint

On Tuesday, November 14, Prince George RCMP and the North District Emergency Response Team responded to a weapons complaint at a residence on the 7000-block of Irene Road.

“After several minutes of police officers calling out to the residents of the home using the police loud hailer, the suspect left the residence and was arrested by police officers without incident,” said Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.

The suspect, identified as Andrew Bazinet, is known to police for similar violent offenses and was bound at the time of the incident by two separate lifetime firearms prohibitions.

  • Pointing a firearm
  • Careless use of a firearm
  • Possession of a weapon

  • Possession of a firearm knowing its possession is unauthorized
  • Unauthorized possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle
  • Possession of a firearm contrary to order
  • Fail to comply with release order
  • Fail to comply with probation order

Andrew Bazinet will remain in custody until his next court appearance.
