Charges have yet to be laid in connection with a pair of separate arrests on Nov. 5 — one involving the seizure of multiple weapons and the other regarding a knife-wielding robbery downtown.

At 7:20 a.m. on Nov. 5, an officer arrested two people asleep in their vehicle on Campbell Creek Pit Road in Dallas after a search yielded a suspected bomb, a loaded gun, a Taser, a baton, brass knuckles, a knife and a BB gun. The search of the vehicle also turned up drugs and stolen property.

The officer was in the area checking on a report of an abandoned vehicle and searched it after spotting a large knife.

The vehicle was uninsured, had mismatched licence plates and was towed.  

Const. Crystal Evelyn said an investigation is ongoing, with charges likely to be recommended to Crown.

At 3:25 p.m. on Nov. 5, police responded to the 400-block of Lansdowne Street downtown for a report of a man who attempted to steal from a business, then brandished a knife when confronted by staff. Officers arrested a suspect nearby and he was taken to cells and later released with a February 2022 court date.
