2 men arrested after realistic air rifle prompts Surrey RCMP response
Two men were arrested Thursday after allegedly carrying a realistic looking air rifle near a Surrey high school.
Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary School was placed on hold and secure protocol as a precaution Thursday afternoon after reports of people walking outside with a gun.
Under a hold and secure protocol, students are kept inside but school operations remain otherwise as normal.
Mounties said the two suspects were located at a nearby home, where they were taken into custody. Police said they also located two airsoft rifles.
The hold and secure was lifted early Thursday afternoon.
