Man wanted on Canada-wide warrants arrested in Cold Lake, Alta.
Three people were taken into custody in Cold Lake, Alta., on Thursday, including a man who was wanted across the country.
RCMP received information the man was at a home in Cold Lake, nearly 300 kilometres northeast of Edmonton, around 6 p.m. They believed he could be armed.
At the address on 65 Avenue, the man refused to come out of the house. Two women were also inside the home.
Mounties contained the area and asked community members to avoid it, saying there was “no danger to the public.” Meanwhile, a special emergency police team from Edmonton, police dogs, and helicopter service were all dispatched.
All three people inside the house were eventually arrested around 1:30 a.m. without incident, police said.
Skylar Ochuschayoo, 26, faces a number of charges related to weapons, as well as one count of obstructing a peace officer.
His next court date is Oct. 19.
