Mischief making led to the seizure of $27,000 and a Glok pistol Friday night.
Three guests at the Holiday Inn Hotel at 4716 34th St. were reported to RCMP to be causing a disturbance, banging on doors and being loud in hallways. Moments before officers arrived, another report arrived that two men had pulled the fire alarm.
Police were told the men, wearing dark clothes and carrying a bag, left through the west doors. When they were told they were under arrest, they ran. Police chased them and made the arrest.
Following an investigation, RCMP learned there were three men using the hotel room as well as a Dodge Avenger in the parking lot. The third man, who at first refused to tell police who he was, was found inside the car.
All three men were arrested and subsequently searched and the money, the gun—along with a Glock magazine—were found. All three were drinking at the time of the incident. The car was towed as part of the investigation.
The three men, aged 26, 22 and 20 are all from the lower mainland.
They will face charges today of Cause a Disturbance, Mischief, Breach of Probation, Possession of Firearm, Possession of Prohibited Device, Obstruction, and Resisting Arrest.
