Police arrest man after overnight incident in Ladner

Delta Police attended 60th Avenue in Ladner shortly before midnight on February 17, 2019.

A man was confirmed to be in a residence contrary to court ordered conditions. A woman was also present in the residence. Because the man refused to exit the residence and comply with his conditions, police moved to contain the residence and tried to work with the man to gain his cooperation.

As the incident progressed the Lower Mainland District Emergency Response Team, negotiators, and the integrated Police Dog Service were called in for assistance.

Delta Police obtained a warrant and negotiators continued working to convince the man to surrender.

“Fortunately negotiators were successful and the man surrendered to police before 7 a.m., February 18,” said Cris Leykauf, spokesperson for Delta Police. “We’re very pleased that there no injuries sustained by any person during this event.”

Contrary to reports on social media, there were no gunshots fired during this incident. The suspect is currently in police custody.
