Police Called to Court-House on Wednesday

The Penticton RCMP were called to the court-house on Wednesday morning, after a man claimed he had been threatened with a gun.

Corporal Don Wrigglesworth says the altercation began in the courthouse between two men, before it moved on to the street.

One man ran to City Hall, claiming he had been threatened, but when police arrived on scene, they found no weapons, and the matter dissipated quickly.

He adds, while investigating the altercation, police found a young woman who was wanted on a theft charge out of Kelowna.

She was arrested.
