A 27-year-old Surrey man is in custody following a stand-off at a South Surrey home last week.

A 27-year-old Surrey man is in custody following a stand-off at a South Surrey home last week.

Police say Air 1 – the Mounties’ dedicated helicopter – and the Emergency Response Team were dispatched to the 15700-block of Croydon Drive late July 24, after a man wanted on two outstanding warrants was tracked to a home in the area. He was believed to be armed.

After the suspect refused for several hours to comply with police demands to exit the home, officers broke through the door at 6:30 a.m. Thursday.

Rodd Kerr, who lives directly below the suite where the suspect was staying, told Peace Arch News Monday that the RCMP had evacuated certain suites and placed marksmen on balconies.

“There were snipers on our balcony and the SWAT team was in the unit below us,” Kerr said. “They evacuated the entire third floor.”

No shots were fired.

Christopher Carl Agin appeared in Surrey Provincial Court July 25. He is charged with assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for dangerous purposes and breach of undertaking. He is due back in court on Aug. 7.
