Shortly after 9:00 PM, East Division patrol officers responded to the Metro Transit Bus Terminal located at 24 Nantucket Ave in Dartmouth.
A complaint had been received from a security guard at that location who had witnessed a man threaten another man with a firearm. The suspect and two associates were then observed fleeing in a taxicab. East Division officers flooded the area and quickly located the cab on Grove St. A high risk vehicle stop was conducted and the three subjects were taken into custody without incident. A subsequent search of the cab resulted in the seizure of a loaded hand gun and a pellet hand gun.
Three men from the Dartmouth area, aged 19, 20 and 25 are currently in police custody and will be held pending their appearance in Dartmouth Provincial Court on Mon. Jan 6th. These accused will be facing numerous weapons related charges.
The victim in this matter has not yet been located.
