On Sunday, December 27, 2020, Alexis Creek RCMP were alerted to an incident involving firearms. It was reported that four men were seen chasing one woman from a home in Anaham Meadows. It was also reported that there was a rifle being carried by the group of men.
The woman, who was unharmed, believed that a family member was being held against their will. The identity of the suspects was known and when police arrive at the residence it is believed that the suspects are there. Poilce set up containment and one man and woman leave the residence and appear to be unharmed.
Police received information that several people were inside with numerous firearms, and no one was allowed to leave. Using the loud hailer on the police vehicle, attempts were made to have everyone leave the house, however it was unsuccessful.
Police Dog Services from Williams Lake, as well as the Emergency Response Team (ERT) from Prince George were called to assist.
After failed attempts to have people exit the residence, ERT were able to safely remove everyone and all were taken into custody.
The investigation continues and anyone with information is asked to call the Alexis Creek RCMP at (250) 394-4211 or Crime Stoppers at 1(800) 222-8477.
