Four men arrested in armed action in Bergen

Four men were arrested after police were notified on Saturday that a person was seen with a weapon in the center of Bergen. Large forces were put into action.

Bergens Tidende first announced the action on Saturday night.

– We first received a message saying that a person was seen in the center of Bergen, where he moved around and took a weapon out of his waistline, says operations manager Morten Rebnord in the Western police district to NTB.

There should not have been any threat situation. The police put in great forces in a search for the person.

– We found him in an outdoor room together with three other men, around 23:30. They were arrested there, at the Xhibition mall, Rebnord says.

Operations Manager has no more details about the detainees except that they are aged 20 to 40 and that they will be questioned on Sunday.

“We also have control of a gun, but I can’t say whether it’s a real gun or whether it’s a replica,” Rebnord says.
