On August 23 2022, the Salt Spring RCMP was assisted by several sections of the RCMP in the execution of a search warrant on Stewart Road on Salt Spring island.

Officers from the Emergency Response team, and Vancouver Island General Investigation Section executed a search warrant at a residence in relation to a firearms investigation.

Members of the public likely noticed the large police presence, including the use of specialized vehicles on their roads, and the RCMP helicopter overhead said Sergeant Chris Manseau, Acting Senior Media Relations Officer for the BC RCMP The search warrant execution was conducted without incident, and there was no threat to the public

During the search, officers arrested one person who has since been released.

The Salt Spring RCMP want to thank the public for their patience during this investigation, and our partners from various sections of the RCMP who assisted Manseau added.

An increased RCMP presence is expected for the next few days as officers continue the investigation. Charges have not yet been laid and no further details will be released at this time.
