Dramatic arrest

Timmins Police were involved a quick and dramatic arrest in a residential area Wednesday in response to a call that a person had a handgun. It all began when police were told that a person was seen trying to sell a firearm to a student at Timmins High and Vocational School during the lunch hour. Police tracked down the location of a suspect’s car and responded quickly detaining a 20-year-old man in his front yard. It turned out the weapon was a paintball gun. Timmins Police says all such “gun calls” are regarded seriously until proven otherwise. The Timmins Police Service says it wants to assure the public that it is confident the local high schools are safe and no weapons or guns of any kind are being circulated.
