Four Prince George residents could face charges after being arrested for a weapons report. 

Cpl. Craig Douglass says just before 8 a.m. on Saturday (Aug. 22), Mounties received a weapons-related report at a motel on the 3400-block Highway 97 (John Hart Highway). 

RCMP arrived at the scene with a police service dog team where four suspects eventually cooperated with authorities and were arrested without incident.

A search for other occupants led to the seizure of a loaded handgun with ammunition.

A 24-year-old man was also found to be wanted on other firearms-related charges that date back to August of 2019.

The three others, a 28-year-old woman, 27-year-old woman and 26-year-old man were released without charges while the investigation continues.
