Arrest in PoMo

A man wanted on a raft of outstanding warrants stemming from a violent break and enter in 2008 is in Port Moody Police Department custody following a joint takedown with the Municipal Integrated Emergency Response Team.

Police cordoned off the 100-block of Brew Street in the densely populated Suter Brook Village Sunday after receiving a tip from the public that the wanted man was holed up there. After confirming the man wanted by police was inside the residence, police made contact with the man who initially denied that he was the one they sought.  After negotiations with police, the man admitted to being the one police were after and came out of the residence without incident.

Const. Bill Kim of PMPD described the man in a press release as “well known to police with an extensive criminal history... and a 10-year firearms prohibition.”

Twenty-four-year-old John Louis Summers was arrested on outstanding warrants, including two counts each of assault with a weapon, break and enter and forcible confinement dating from 2008.
