Abbotsford police have wrapped a manhunt for an alleged car thief who may have been armed.
But Constable Ian MacDonald says when they caught up with him in a restaurant bathroom — he didn’t have a weapon.
“We haven’t finished our search of the area, but at the point of arrest, he didn’t have a real or imitation firearm on his person”
The hunt was sparked around five p-m — after a car was seen driving erratically near Whatcom and Marshall roads.
One witness told police he thought the driver pointed a gun at him.
MacDonald says K-9 units are now retracing the man’s steps.
