Two men, 20 and 18, were arrested after a man was threatened with a gun for not giving them cigarettes on Wednesday.
Shortly after noon, Langley RCMP were called to the 20400 block of 53 Avenue to investigate a gun sighting.
The witness said he had been approached by three men who asked him for cigarettes, said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks. When he said he would not give them any, one of the three displayed the butt end of a firearm and threatened him. The group argued for a short time and the three suspects fled on foot, said Marks.
A short time later, a Langley officer located two of the men matching the description provided. She arrested the two, a 20 year old Langley man and an 18-year-old Surrey man and completed a search of them. No gun was found.
A perimeter was established in the area and unsuccessful attempts by the Lower Mainland Police Dog Services were made to locate the third suspect. The officers did however locate a long barreled paint ball gun in a grassed area, believed to be the weapon shown.
The gun has been seized, the suspects released for now and the investigation continues, said Marks.
One of the suspects appeared to have a dog, and kneeled down while cuffed to comfort his pet.
At least five police units were called to the scene.
