Heavily armed police officers were in the 15800-block of Prospect Crescent in White Rock Tuesday (Oct. 20), reportedly in connection with a homicide investigation.

Witnesses tell Peace Arch News several people were arrested at the home, located near Peace Arch Elementary, however, police would not confirm the information.

Members of the Vancouver Police Department and Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team were seen at a two-storey home in the neighbourhood, with signs of damage – including smashed windows on the upper and lower floors – evident in the early afternoon. Gang enforcement officers were also seen.

A VPD officer at the scene told PAN that Surrey RCMP was assisting the investigation and that the action was in connection with the execution of a search warrant related to a homicide; Surrey RCMP Cpl. Joanie Sidhu referred questions to Integrated Homicide Investigation Team spokesman Sgt. Frank Jang, however, Jang said he was not aware of any IHIT involvement in White Rock Tuesday.

White Rock RCMP Staff Sgt. Kale Pauls confirmed the search warrant was being executed by the VPD, supported by the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team.

VPD spokesperson Simi Heer said only that the search warrant was “in relation to an ongoing investigation.” Heer said she did not expect to share any further details regarding the incident today.
