At 3 p.m., four police vehicles lined the north side of 24 Avenue, and officers could be seen putting one man into the back of an SUV. The man was yelling expletives at the officers.

A variety of evidence bags were on the hood of one police vehicle.

The investigation is “in the early stages,” Sturko said.
