Anyone out on Earl Street early Wednesday morning may have seen fire crews awaiting deployment at a residence.

The cause of the call was actually a safety measure by Trail and District RCMP.

Corp. Dave Johnson said police had attended the residence initially to arrest a man on criminal matters during the time between Monday night and Tuesday morning.

Officers got wind that the man may be a danger to himself.

“That individual then indicated that they may harm themselves so as a precaution we had fire stand-by until we could speak to the person and arrest him,” Johnson said.

“They were standing-by just in case we needed them.”

Police managed to arrest the man, without any injuries or damage, in the end.

“We made a safe and effective arrest this morning at about 8 o’clock (a.m.)” he added.
