Wanted Langley couple arrested, along with fugitive from Alberta

A Langley couple wanted for robbery were arrested with a fugitive from Calgary.

Langley RCMP have revealed the arrests of James and Nicole Gunn were made when police captured Michael Anthony Ghostkeeper, who was wanted by the Calgary Police Service on 18 charges.

When Ghostkeeper was arrested on April 3 by the Surrey RCMP’s High Risk Target Team and Emergency Response Team (ERT), the Gunns were with him, police said.

James Donald Gunn and his wife, Nicole Jean Gunn, both 31, were being sought by Langley RCMP for a variety of robbery-related offences.

RCMP allege James Gunn robbed a Subway restaurant on Jan. 20 and a day spa on Jan. 25.

He is also facing two charges of wearing a disguise with intent.

Police also allege Nicole Gunn was involved in the spa robbery.

She is also charged with flight from a peace officer and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. A “hatchet-type” weapon was used in both robberies, police said.

Both are still in custody and were scheduled to make their next court appearance April 16.

The charges against Ghostkeeper include robbery, two counts of kidnapping, extortion, assault with a weapon, using a firearm in the commission of an offence, pointing a firearm, uttering threats, discharging a firearm, three counts of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, careless use of a firearm, two counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm, two counts of possession of a firearm knowing it was unauthorized and causing a disturbance.

On Monday, police said Ghostkeeper would be sent back to Alberta this week, with assistance from B.C.’s Fugitive Return Program (BCFRP), which is managed by the RCMP and the Vancouver Police Department.

Since September 2011, the program has sent 65 people in B.C. back to answer charges in other provinces.
