A large number of police have converged on a small reserve near Agassiz Wednesday afternoon.
More than a dozen marked and unmarked RCMP vehicles, including those from the Emergency Response Team, descended on Sts’ailes First Nation reserve at about 2:30 p.m. The reason for the huge police presence is not yet known, but those driving in and out are reporting having their vehicles searched.
One resident said officers were in a store looking for a suspect, and another said there is a helicopter hovering over the neighbourhood as well.
Police vehicles were also blocking all entrances to the reserve.
