File # 2023-19803

On November 10, 2023 at 9:24 a.m., the Barriere RCMP received information that a woman was possibly being held against her will by a man known to police at his residence in the Louis Creek area. Prior to police arrival, the woman was apparently able to exit the residence and fled into the surrounding brush.

Through the use of a monitoring device, the man was located at a nearby motel. Due to the nature of the call as well history of the suspect, out of an abundance of caution the Southeast District Emergency Response Team was called to support local police in affecting an arrest.

The man was subsequently brought into custody without incident and was held on outstanding warrants from other jurisdictions. He is scheduled to appear later this week on other charges.

With assistance from Police Dog Services, the woman was located safe and sound.

The coordinated effort of several RCMP units were key in ensuring the safe resolution of this incident, says Cpl. James Grandy, BC RCMP spokesperson. The effective use of resources such as the Police Dog Services and the Southeast District Emergency Response Team played an important role.
