One person has been taken into custody after a police incident at the Pacific Highway border crossing in Surrey, B.C. Surrey RCMP say they received reports from the Canada Border Services Agency around 2:40 p.m. Tuesday that a vehicle failed to stop while heading into Canada from the U.S. Police say the suspect allegedly had a firearm.

The Mounties followed the vehicle into south Surrey until it turned and headed back toward the same border crossing.

It was stopped on the U.S. side of the border and U.S. officials took an American citizen into custody.

Surrey RCMP are leading the investigation, with help from the Canada Border Services agency and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

A statement from U.S. border officials says the entry has been re-opened.
