Vancouver Police continue to negotiate the surrender of occupants in a home on Knight Street subsequent to the execution of a search warrant.

A flash bang device was used earlier outside the home by the Vancouver Police Emergency Response Team.

Traffic in the area is expected to be impacted for the next several hours due to the incident.

Noticed the traffic rerouting on my way home from work. They had quite a few officers/squad cars blocking a 4 block radius from kingsway to king ed between knight and inverness. That was at 5pm.

I'm sure I'll read about it tomorrow in the paper.

Thankfully it wasn't fog as fuck; crack house full of crack heads + fog + flashbags don't mix well.

whorehouse + crackhouse? I'm not to sure LOL

When I was in area, a lady on a megaphone was negotiating with the house saying "Matthew, Thomas, _____(forgot what was said)________, if you agree turn on your lights, and walk out the back door."

Sorry I'm not to good at this

From reddit:

Quote:
They threw a bunch of flashbangs inside and surrounded the place, surrounded the house and closed off all the roads.
After more and more cop cars showed up, finally a big ass swat truck showed up and drove straight over the curb and through the fence, right up to the house with a guy on a turret up top.
They smashed the window and threw a few more flash bangs in there, all the while more cops were showing up and they were yelling a bunch of stuff into the house through a loud speaker while the cop talking was in the Vietnamese rental place next door. General 'we have you surrounded, we are not leaving, come out with your hands up facing the police' business.
They moved a bunch of cop cars around and seemed to be barricading the back entrance in more, and then another cop car showed up and they brought a laptop into the place where the people making the announcements were, then the annoucements turned into 'Trevor, we know you are in there, we saw you go in, if you come out now we can guarantee your safety, we can't later' and then 'those of you in there with Trevor, just because he wants to stay in there, doesn't mean you have to, come out now with your hands up'
A little while later they threw another couple flash bangs and started pumping some shotgun shots into the front of the house.

Apparently, situation was resolved by 11:30PM, but no word of arrests

Police standoff blocks traffic along Vancouver's Knight Street

EDIT: Four people have been arrested....."Vancouver police spokesman Sgt. Randy Fincham says two men and two women are in custody"
