  1. I find this funny … “Several hours later police obtained a warrant and members of the ERT entered the home and found it empty.
    They think the suspect went out the back door as they waited out front.”

    Sounds like something from Beverley Hills Cops. With the number of officers on site, makes you wonder what that whole tactical exercise cost the people of Vancouver.
