Two Niagara Region residents are facing drugs and weapon charges after a gun was pulled out in a bitter dispute among friends.
Niagara Police were called to the scene in the Wallace Avenue and Paul Street in Welland on Monday (August 2) after 9 pm to deal with a fight in progress.
In the course of investigating the fight, the police discovered one man in the argument had allegedly pulled out a gun. However, he fled the scene in a car before their arrival.
Eventually, the police found his car parked at a house in the north end of St Catharines which led to a drawn-out overnight negotiation involving the Emergency Task Unit, Canine Unit and Crisis Negotiators to get the suspect to come out.
Finally at 5:45 am on August 3, the suspect came out and gave himself up for arrest.
Javante Weston, 26, of Niagara Falls is facing charges of pointing a firearm, assault with a weapon, possession of illegal drugs for trafficking and possession of cash from crimes.
Madison Delaney, 23, of St. Catharines was also arrested in the incident and charged with possession of illegal drugs for trafficking and possession of cash from crimes.
