File # 2017-3261

On April 24, shortly at 7:30 a.m., the Oceanside RCMP responded to a residence on Grandrose Road in Qualicum Beach to check well-being after receiving a dropped 911 call. Upon police attendance, it was discovered that the lone occupant of the home, a 41 year old Qualicum Beach man had an outstanding arrest warrant.

The suspect male refused to exit the home and would not comply with police demands. Out of concern for police and public safety, the RCMP Emergency Response Team and a negotiator were called to attend. After a lengthy negotiation, the man was arrested without incident at 11:15 a.m. He is now in RCMP custody.
