PG RCMP catch suspect with loaded firearm

A violent offender who was in possession of a loaded firearm has been arrested by the Prince George RCMP.

Just after 8 p.m. on Sunday, May 21, an officer while on patrol along 20th Avenue and Tamarack Street recognized the suspect who had a warrant out for his arrest.

Once the officer approached, the suspect identified as Brandhon Leslie Dargatz initially fled on foot but was caught moments later.

During a search, officers found a located firearm in his backpack.
