Police say that one man has been arrested in connection to the sudden death of a senior woman in Aldergrove.

A man was taken into custody while officers do their investigation, police said in a news release later that night.

“Police have no reason to believe there is any danger to the public,” Cpl. Holly Largy said.

Largy said the police would not be issuing any additional information on the case until the autopsy is complete.
