UPDATE: 26-year-old Coquitlam man arrested during Maple Ridge operation

Joshawa Hall has been arrested following the Dec. 30 high risk warrant execution

A joint police operation was conducted in Maple Ridge on Dec. 30, leading to the arrest of a 26-year-old Coquitlam man.

Members of New Westminster Police, Ridge Meadows RCMP, and the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team descended upon the 12300-block of 227 Street in Maple Ridge, where they jointly executed a high-risk warrant.

Hailey Finnigan of the New Westminster Police explained that the suspect arrested was wanted on numerous warrants, including an incident involving the assault of a New Westminster woman in January of 2022, where the suspect barricaded himself in a home during a lengthy standoff with police.

“The warrants for Joshawa Hall’s arrest were connected to the assault of a woman in New Westminster in early 2022, as well as breaching court-imposed bail conditions, failing to appear in court, and evading arrest,” said Finnigan.

During the operation, civilians in the area reported hearing gunshots and seeing tear gas deployed, although this has yet to be confirmed by police.

Hall remains in police custody while the investigation continues.
