On January 23rd a homeowner in the Kitamaat village contacted the Kitimat RCMP Detachment saying their intoxicated sibling was loading firearms inside the house and had threatened their life. Members of the Kitimat RCMP were able to safely remove the complainant from their house. With the assistance of the Terrace RCMP, and through consultation with the Kitimat RCMP Detachment Commander, the street in front of the house was blocked off for public travel. After more than 14 hours of unsuccessful attempts at contacting the suspect by way of loud hailer and telephone, an arrest plan was put into place and Roger GREEN was arrested without incident. Several firearms were located and GREEN remains in custody. GREEN was recently previously released on a Recognizance by the Prince Rupert RCMP with conditions that include; Not to Possess Firearms and Not to Consume Alcohol.
