Police say they have apprehended a suspect seen earlier this week in downtown Vancouver with a handgun.

Vancouver police have arrested a man who was captured on surveillance footage earlier this week brandishing what looked to be a gun in downtown Vancouver.

The 54-year-old Vancouver man was apprehended Thursday night and was in possession of a replica handgun and other weapons, the VPD stated Oct. 22 in a media release.

“We are very thankful for the heads-up person who recognized the suspect and called our tip line immediately,” says Constable Tania Visintin, VPD. 

Firearm-related charges have been recommended to Crown counsel.

The suspect remains in custody.
