A 23-year-old man is spending the first day of 2013 in jail after stealing a few cases of red bull from a Burnaby gas station.
RCMP Staff Sergeant Steve Crawford says the man kicked out windows at the Chevron on Canada Way just after 11 on New Year’s Eve, claiming he had a gun.
"Integrated lower mainland police dog service attended along with Burnaby RCMP members. They did a fairly short track, and located the suspect."
Crawford says the man has a history with police, and is known to be armed and dangerous.
He will remain in custody pending charges.
