Emergency Response Team called

RCMP chopper and armoured vehicles converge in Barriere

A large police presence in the community of Barriere last Sunday had residents wondering what was going on.

It appears the RCMP Emergency Response Team was called in at approximately 11 a.m. Sunday morning due to a domestic matter somewhere along Barriere Lakes Road. An RCMP helicopter also attended, waiting on alert with the ERT vehicles in downtown Barriere.

RCMP media relations, when asked declined to make a statement at the time, noting this was because it was a domestic matter.

There were unconfirmed reports of the presence of firearms in the residence in question.

Police did report the matter was resolved by midnight, there were no injuries, and one man had been taken into custody.
