The James Smith Cree Nation was put on and hold and secure earlier today by RCMP due to a suspected armed person.

Mounties said a black 2012 Cadillac Escalade SUV with Saskatchewan license plate 190 MVF was stolen in Prince Albert at approximately 9:30 this morning.

The preliminary investigation determined that the suspect may be armed, but authorities could not confirm.

“Melfort RCMP have conducted proactive patrols in the James Smith Cree Nation and surrounding communities. Melfort RCMP initially recommended a hold-and-secure to the community as a precaution, which has since been lifted. Officers continue to provide regular updates to the leadership in James Smith Cree Nation as the investigation progresses,” said a statement from the RCMP.

“At this stage in the investigation, the location and destination of the vehicle is unknown. Melfort RCMP advises the public that if you see the black 2012 Cadillac Escalade SUV, do not approach, and report this sighting to police immediately by calling 911 or your local police of jurisdiction.”
