Quesnel Man Arrested By Swat Team To Be Sentenced

A date has been set for sentencing for a Quesnel man who was arrested with the aide of a crisis negotiator.

42-year old James Dunlop is due back in court on April 6th.

A Supreme Court Justice found him guilty of Assault With a Weapon, Possession of a Weapon for Dangerous Purpose and Mischief under $5,000.

Dunlop was acquitted on a count of Unlawful Confinement and a charge of Uttering Threats was stayed.

The charges were laid following an incident in the 900 block of Anderson Drive in West Quesnel back in September of 2016.

Police say they received a report that a man, armed with a knife, was inside the residence and that he was distraught and causing damage.

The area was cordoned off and RCMP say extra resources were brought in, including a crisis negotiator, who was eventually able to get the man to give himself up.
