For over an hour on Friday afternoon, residents in the 500 block of Kent Road were escorted out of their homes as officers sought to bring Moar into custody, police said.

Officers deployed an armoured vehicle to the scene as they attempted to make the arrest. Police believe Moar was under the influence of meth at the time.

“We’ll use every resource we can to ensure that not only can we safely extract this person, but that we can safely ensure the safety of the public in the area too.” says Cst. Jay Murray of the Winnipeg Police.
