Sydney Man Due in Court After Mayflower Mall Lockdown
A 35-year-old Sydney man will appear in Sydney Court today after a lock down at the Mayflower Mall, yesterday.
Regional Police got reports of a possible sighting of a man with a weapon outside the Mall at approximately 9:40 in the morning.
They cleared the building and later reopened the mall after a review of video surveillance.
Shortly before noon, police were called to Charlotte Street in Sydney after reports of a man with a weapon there.
They add the man was quickly arrested without incident and identified him as the same man seen in the area of the Mayflower Mall.
They say officers seized a BB gun from the man.
He faces charges of Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose and a Breach of Probation.
He’s on remand at the Cape Breton Correctional Centre in advance of today’s Court appearance.
