Five arrested as RCMP execute search warrant near Chase
RCMP members from Chase, Salmon Arm and the Police Dog Section in Kamloops arrested four men and a female following an executed search for illegal firearms near Chase.
Search warrant execution also involved the high-risk stops of three vehicles in Squilax, which had departed the Lee Creek residence.
One of the men arrested was on a Recognizance, facing charges in relation to twelve armed robberies in Alberta. Charges are pending against several of the people arrested, and the investigation continues.
This was the same residence on Eva Road where, in January, one man was shot numerous times but survived.
The attempted murder investigation continues in that case, but there does not appear to be a connection between the attempted murder and the firearms in the latest seizure.
The residence is well known to police.
