Great work by officers working out of the York Regional Police #5 District Uniform Patrol Unit has resulted in the arrest of a 25-year-old man for possession of a quantity of drugs and a possession of a loaded handgun after a foot pursuit in the Town of Markham.

On Saturday, November 20, 2010, at approximately 5 p.m., members working out of the #5 District uniform Patrol Unit investigated a suspicious man in the area of Bur Oak Avenue and The Bridle Walk in the Town of Markham. During the investigation, the suspect fled from police on foot and a brief pursuit began. While engaged in the pursuit the suspect was observed throwing an object into a nearby pond.

The suspect was quickly apprehended by police and found to be in possession of a quantity of what is believed to be marihuana and ketamine. Following the arrest, investigators engaged the York Regional Police Underwater Recovery Unit, who then located a loaded handgun in the pond the following morning.
