ERT members arrived at a Langley City residence to execute a search warrant Tuesday afternoon.

Updated: Police raid Langley City location after receiving weapons warning

Address targeted by ERT may have been previously raided for mail theft

Heavily-armed police officers raided a Langley City residence on Fraser Highway near 201 Street Tuesday afternoon.

Members of the Emergency Response Team arrived around 4 p.m. in an armored truck.

They blocked off the street and used a loudspeaker to tell occupants of a first-floor suite that the ERT was there to serve a search warrant, that the people inside were under arrest and for them to exit the premises.

After about 20 minutes it was determined that no one was in the residence and the ERT stood down.

Members of the Langley RCMP remained at the scene.

One person was later arrested without incident on a breach of recognizance charge.

Police said the ERT became involved because there was a tip that there could be weapons inside the suite.

However, none were found.

One (non-police) source told The Times that the address appeared to be the same location that was raided previously by RCMP as part of a mail theft investigation.
