VANCOUVER - The RCMP in Chase have arrested a man who had barricaded himself inside a branch of the Royal Bank.
Sgt. Dan Moskaluk says the man was taken into custody without incident.
Mounties in the community about 300 kilometres north of Vancouver had surrounded the bank after a holdup alarm went off.
The standoff began around 4:40 Thursday afternoon.
Moskaluk earlier said in a news release that it was believed the man is in his 50s and was armed with a gun and a knife.
