Jun 8, 2018

Reports of a person possibly carrying a gun at the Dartmouth Mall prompted a search by police early Friday afternoon.

According to Dartmouth Police Det. Kyle Costa, two calls were received reporting an individual on mall property carrying an object concealed by a sheet which appeared to resemble a long gun. The calls prompted the dispatch of the entire shift on duty at the time to investigate.

Officers searched the entire property and did not find anything, Costa said. Several officers remained at the mall for a period of time once the search was over.
