West Kelowna  

Guns out suspects cuffed

Like a scene out of a movie, five people were pulled out of a car and arrested at gunpoint in West Kelowna Wednesday night.

Witnesses say three cops came running down Marshall Road shortly after 6 p.m. with their guns drawn. They were aiming them at suspects in a vehicle.

Five people were pulled out and put on the ground with their hands behind their heads.

One witness says he heard the cops say to the driver that he was under arrest for break and enter.

The police were focused on the vehicle and trailer number 17 at the mobile home park at 2345 Marshall Road.

All five were hand cuffed and put in police vehicles for questioning and all were removed from the property via cop car.

A K9 unit was also brought in, the dog was sent into the vehicle as part of the search for evidence.

Neighbours say the trailer park owner came shortly after and let officers into trailer 17. RCMP then appeared to confiscate items from the unit. 

We will have more details as they become available.
