On Sunday March 19th, 2023, UCCM Police responded to a weapons call at a residence on the M’Chigeeng First Nation. There was an elevated public safety risk, therefore, a heavy police presence and measured response was observed in the area. As the investigation unfolded a warrant to enter the residence was granted. The Police Tactical Unit established contact with a subject inside the residence.

Subsequently, the subject had exited the residence and was taken into police custody. UCCM Police were assisted by the Ontario Provincial Police involving members from Manitoulin Detachment, Northeast Emergency Response Unit, Aviation Services, Tactics and Rescue Unit.

This incident came to a peaceful resolution. No one was harmed during this incident and no Criminal Charges have been laid. UCCM Police would like to thank the Community of M’Chigeeng for assisting police and having patience during this investigation.
