FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – M’Chigeeng, ON, June 03, 2024

On June 03, 2024, UCCM Police along with the OPP Emergency Response Team (ERT) began containment on an apartment at 36 Tikmeg Road, M’Chigeeng FN.  A CDSA search warrant had been applied for by UCCM Detectives and authorized for the residence.

The OPP Critical Incident Command unit, Crisis negotiators, the Tactical Rescue Unit (TRU) and K9 Unit, later arrived and the residence was searched, and a female resident taken into custody.  A male party refused to exit the residence.  Negotiators and TRU continue to convince the male to safely surrender to Police.

Information received by Detectives with UCCM indicate the male party is armed and Police believe a firearm may be present and therefore Police are advising the public in the immediate area to shelter in place while Investigators and Specialized units continue to try and apprehend the male party safely.

This remains an active investigation with the UCCM Police and the OPP.

Identity of the people arrested will be provided once formal charges are laid and the names can be legally provided to the public.
