The Southeast District Emergency Response Team (SED ERT) was deployed to Salmon Arm today to assist with a pair of high risk warrant executions at properties located in the 400-block of 22nd Street N.E. and the 1300-block of 30th Street S.E.

On January 7, 2020 shortly before 11 a.m., frontline officers and plain clothes investigators of the Salmon Arm RCMP attended to two separate residences alongside a team of tactically trained members, from the Southeast District Emergency Response Team, to execute the pair of search warrants consecutively. The SED Tactical Armoured Vehicle (or TAV) was utilized on this most recent deployment to the southern interior’s Shuswap region.

The warrants were related to an ongoing criminal investigation being led by the Salmon RCMP.

The police operation has since ended without incident, states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, spokesperson for the Southeast District. Two individuals were taken into custody during the execution of the warrants. A third individual connected to the case was already in police custody on an unrelated matter. The investigation remains ongoing as police continue to gather evidence at both scenes.

All three men, a 39-year-old from Canoe B.C., a 28-year old from Salmon Arm and a 27-year-old from Salmon Arm remain in custody at this time. They each face potential criminal charges.
