RCMP Report

A 22-year-old Barriere man faces a number of possible charges after an incident on Saturday night.

In the evening of June 14, 2014, the Barriere RCMP received a report of assault and uttering threats at a residence on the 3500 block of South Barriere Lake Road.

A 22-year-old Barriere man had apparently assaulted a 55-year-old Barriere man and uttered threats towards him. The suspect was known to have access to firearms and immediate efforts were made to secure them. Although several firearms were seized, the suspect was not initially located.

Due to the circumstances of the offence and the ongoing risk to public safety, police obtained an arrest Warrant for Jordee Edward Beeds.

In the early morning hours of June 16, 2014, the Southeast District RCMP Emergency Response Team was activated and established containment on the residence.

Beeds was arrested without incident shortly after contact was initiated. He has been charged with Assault, Uttering Threats and Mischief. 

He is expected to appear in Court on June 16, 2014.
