Firearms concern fuels RCMP response

Police blocked roads and surrounded a White Rock home Sunday.

A report of a domestic incident in White Rock Sunday prompted road blocks at Oxford Street and Thrift Avenue after police determined there were weapons in the home.

Const. Janelle Shoihet said police blocked Thrift Avenue west of Everall Street and redirected southbound traffic from Oxford Street from about 7-8:30 p.m. Nov. 27 after a woman called to report trouble in a Thrift Avenue home.

“We shut down the whole block,” Shoihet said, of steps taken once it was known firearms were inside.

“There were probably 10 or 12 police cars stationed on Goggs.”

Shoihet said the firearms were registered weapons, but police couldn’t take any chances.

“We have to take all precautions when it comes to that,” she said.

A 41-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident. No one was injured.
