Kitamaat Village standoff ends in arrest

RCMP say a 14-hour weekend standoff in Kitamaat Village ended peacefully with the arrest of one man.

A resident contacted police last Saturday when the person’s intoxicated brother started loading firearms in the house and threatening their life.

Mounties were able to safely remove the caller from the home and blocked off the street from traffic.

Kitimat RCMP says that after over 14 hours of unsuccessfully trying to contact the suspect by phone and loud hailer, police put an arrest plan into action and took the man into custody without incident.

Officers found several firearms in the home.

Police say 54 year-old Roger Green remains in custody and is facing a number of charges in connection with the incident, including uttering threats.
