Vancouver Police seize a third stash of weapons close to Oppenheimer Park

Vancouver, BC – Vancouver Police have seized another stash of weapons from a home close to Oppenheimer Park, further raising concerns of public safety and violence around the park.

Just before 1:00 p.m. on March 4, VPD officers received information there was a large amount of weapons inside a suite in the area of Dunlevy and East Cordova Streets. After obtaining a search warrant, officers seized nine imitation firearms, ammunition, swords, hatchets, and several other suspected stolen items.

The investigation is continuing. No arrests have been made to-date. This is the third weapons seizure in the park and surrounding area in nine days; officers seized weapons discovered during an assault investigation in the park on March 4, and while investigating a report of a domestic assault in the park on February 27.

“More weapons have now been removed from the street,” says Sergeant Aaron Roed, VPD. “We will continue to take steps to improve safety in the area for everyone.”
