A four-hour standoff between Creston RCMP and a male break and enter suspect was resolved without violence on Friday evening.

“Members of the Creston RCMP were called to a report of a break and enter that had just occurred at a residence on Cook Street,” Cpl. Dan Moskaluk reported in a press release on Monday. “The suspect fled the home after being confronted by the occupants of the home.

“After fleeing the scene, members tracked the suspect to a residence on 16th Avenue North in Creston. The suspect barricaded himself inside the residence with his common law spouse and her two young children. These persons were not believed to be in danger, and were not harmed. It is not believed that the suspect had any weapons.”

Four hours later, shortly after RCMP members had obtained a warrant to enter the residence and arrest the subject, he surrendered peacefully.

Nathan Beaudry, 34, was arrested for two counts of break and entry, breach of conditions, damage to property and uttering threats.

He was held in custody pending a court hearing scheduled for Oct. 23.
