SUDBURY -- Ontario Provincial Police in West Parry Sound say the heavy presence north of Nobel continues Tuesday as officers search for a second male suspect following one arrest and gun seizure.

Just before 11 p.m. Monday, OPP tweeted about the search for a man who "may be armed" in the area where Highway 400 meets Highway 559, north of Parry Sound.

An update posted to Twitter Tuesday at 9:24 a.m. said that a handgun has been seized and "body armour located in vehicle. One person arrested and charged with weapons and drug offences. Second male still at large."

Police describe the suspect as:

  • Black
  • 18 to 20-years-old
  • Wearing a thin, white t-shirt and black Adidas pants

Police are dispelling rumours that the men were wearing body armour and say there were no assault rifles involved.
