Three locals arrested with guns and drugs
On May 10, Cranbrook RCMP entered into an investigation of forcible confinements and assaults, which occurred near Cranbrook.
The investigation led to a campsite near Fort Steele where the Cranbrook RCMP’s Crime Reduction Unit, General Investigation Services, General Duty and Police Dog Service swooped in and arrested three individuals; two adult males and one adult female who all have ties to Cranbrook.
“Loaded firearms and drugs were located and the trio will be facing multiple charges in addition to the charges stemming from the original investigation. All three are currently still in custody,” reported S/Sgt Hector Lee, Cranbrook RCMP Detachment commander.
