Break And Enter Arrest

A 49 year old Saskatoon man is in custody following an incident in a Lakeview home early this morning.

Saskatoon Police received information just after 2:30 a.m. that a male, wanted on outstanding charges, had broken into a home in the 1200 block of Emerald Crescent. When police arrived they were unable to make contact with the man inside the home. Emergency Response Team and Crisis Negotiators were called to the scene shortly afterward because it was thought the male may have been in possession of firearms. The Explosives Disposal Unit robot was also brought to the scene and used to enter the home just before 6:00 this morning when contact with the male was still unsuccessful. At that time the male was taken into custody without incident. No firearms were found and no one else was in the home during the incident.

The 49 year old male is facing charges of Break and Enter and Mischief Under $5,000. Previous charges were for Break and Enter and Uttering Threats.
