A third man, 28-years-old, was arrested and released for violating court ordered prohibition and was found in possession of a prohibited weapon.

A 17-year-old female was taken from the residence and turned over to her parents.

“Several other people at the house were released without any charges,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson.
