Murder suspect arrested

SURREY – A Surrey homicide suspect who had been playing a 54-day "cat and mouse" game with police has been arrested.

 

Barry McQuarrie – aka "Bad Ass Barry" – was captured inside a garage in a Langley home late Friday night, bringing to an end the manhunt.

 

"The occupants of this home are in no way connected to Mr. McQuarrie and are relieved and grateful for the apprehension," said Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pound, of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team

 

McQuarrie, 33, is expected to appear in Surrey provincial court today (Monday) charged with firstdegree murder, theft over $5,000, driving while disqualified, auto theft and breaching probation.

 

McQuarrie had been on the lam since Gregory Quesnelle, 32, was shot dead inside a townhouse at Rodeo Park Place in Cloverdale on May 12.
