A lot of people were wondering what was going on one day last week when a trio of RCMP vehicles sped into the yard of a Slave Lake school, lights flashing. They sat there a few seconds, then sped off again, with nobody getting out of a vehicle.
Police presence ata school is alarming, and a short time later, the RCMP issued the following:
“RCMP were dispatched to a complaint of a male carrying a firearm near EG Wahlstrom School….”
The man wasn’t there, but police found him on 3rd Ave. NW. He wasn’t carrying a firearm, but did have other, unspecified weapons on him. Charges are pending.
The release did not confirm that the man was masked. It appears he did not “have any involvement with the school.”
