Long police operation in Madran: man arrested and prohibited weapons seized

A police operation forced the evacuation of certain residences in Madran, NB on August 5th. A man was arrested after about ten hours and prohibited weapons were seized.

In New Brunswick, a long police operation forced the evacuation of some residences in Madran, last Friday. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) finally arrested a 41-year-old man after about ten hours.

On August 5, at the request of the Gatineau Police Service, RCMP officers executed an arrest warrant at a residence in Madran. When they arrived at the scene, around 5:30 a.m., several shots were fired inside the house, according to the police.

A perimeter was then established and some nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution, the RCMP said in a statement. Other specialized services were involved, including the tactical intervention group, the police dog section and the crisis negotiation team.

A 41-year-old man surrendered to police more than 10 hours later, around 4 p.m., without further incident. He was remanded in custody.

The day after the individual was arrested, the police seized several loaded firearms, some of which are prohibited, and ammunition.

No one was injured during the police operation. The RCMP also seized several loaded firearms, some of which are prohibited, and ammunition.

The next day, the man was handed over to the Gatineau police department in Quebec.

We would like to thank members of the community for their support and patience, as well as our many partners for their assistance during this long operation, says Sergeant Roch Lizotte of the detachment of the RCMP in the Chaleur region.

The investigation is continuing.
