Barry McQuarrie taken into custody after man hunt
VANCOUVER, B.C. — The man hunt is over for a murder suspect who’s been hiding from authorities since mid-May.
Gregory Quesnelle was shot to death in a home in Cloverdale on May 12. Shortly after, authorities began searching for Barry McQuarrie, 33, who was wanted on four outstanding warrants not related to Quesnelle’s death. Police warned the public he was armed, dangerous and a prime suspect in the homicide.
Sgt. Jennifer Pound with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team confirmed McQuarrie was arrested July 4 on the outstanding warrants. Police are also recommending a charge of first degree murder in connection with Quesnelle’s death, but this has not yet been approved.
He was apprehended from a garage in the 3700 block of 260 Street in Langley. Sgt. Pound confirmed the people living in the home are not associated with McQuarrie. She said Air One and the Emergency Response Team were involved in the arrest.
