A 31-year-old male has been taken into police custody after a police incident which caused the evacuation of eleven homes in the surrounding area and a partial road closure.

The police incident began shortly after 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 6 when RCMP were called to the Poplar Avenue residence for a disturbance.

Due to safety concerns which presented themselves during the investigation, the RCMP’s Emergency Response Team was deployed.

He was arrested and taken into police custody without further incident.

Police are recommending charges of assault with a weapon and uttering threats.

RCMP would like to thank those affected by the evacuation for their patience during this incident.

Their cooperation allowed for this incident to be brought to a safe and successful conclusion.
