TRURO - Wednesday night's police response on Queen Street had to do with a mental health situation, police said Thursday.
The Truro Police Service received a call at 7:35 p.m. from a third party that a man may have a firearm in his home. Multiple police officers responded due to the nature of the information it had received and to provide a perimeter to ensure the situation didn't get out of the area.
"It's a high-risk call involving a firearm until it is proven one way or the other," said Staff-Sgt. Randy MacKenzie.
No firearms were located but the man, who was alone in the residence, was arrested at 9:10 p.m.
No charges are pending and no injuries were reported.
