Media Releases

Police originally responded to reports of a possible sighting of a male with a weapon outside of the Mayflower Mall at approximately 9:40 AM; after a short lockdown and review of video surveillance, police cleared the building of any threat to public safety and reopened the doors. Shortly after, at approximately 11:45 AM, police responded to reports of a man with a weapon on Charlotte Street, who they quickly arrested without incident and identified as the same man seen in the area of the Mayflower Mall.

No one was injured; police seized a gun from the man’s possession, which they confirmed as a BB gun.

The man will be remanded to the Cape Breton Correctional Centre this evening until his Court appearance.
