Chase RCMP arrest man who neighbours allege threatened them with a firearm

June 04, 2020 - 11:20 AM

Police have arrested an Anglemont man after neighbours alleged he threatened them with a firearm.

Chase RCMP responded to a report of a man screaming and threatening to kill a neighbour's entire household May 29, according to an RCMP release.

The man was target shooting in his backyard with a .22 calibre rifle, then allegedly threatened to shoot the neighbour's house. While the victim was on the phone with a 911 dispatcher, a shot was heard.

"Police arrived, surrounded the house and subsequently located the suspect attempting to flee in a vehicle, down a back alleyway," Sgt. Barry Kennedy, Chase RCMP Detachment Commander said in a release.

"Police blocked off the vehicle and arrested the driver without incident. Officers located a loaded .22 calibre rifle inside the suspect’s vehicle as well as several other loaded guns and weapons in his house."

Police arrested Darryl Pick, 49, who was already under a condition not to possess any firearms or weapons following an incident with police in November 2019. Pick had pointed an imitation handgun at police during an encounter at his residence. 

Pick was taken into custody and will be detained until his next court appearance on June 15, 2020.
