Just after 5 p.m. members located the man’s car and pulled it over.​ The man jumped out of the car holding a firearm in his hand.​ With some negotiation, members calmed the man and he dropped the firearm. The man was arrested and no one was injured. The firearm was determined to be an imitation firearm and was seized.

The man from Shelburne County remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in Yarmouth Provincial Court on January 17, 2022 to face charged of Uttering Threats and Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose.
