Property Owner Who Fired Shots During B&E Will Not Be Charged

Big River RCMP members located the F350 truck March 13 around 7:30 p.m. in Debden, Sk. One adult female and two adult males were arrested in Debden without incident. No charges have been laid at this time in relation to these three arrests – this investigation is ongoing.

Following investigation, no charges will be laid in relation to the discharge of the firearm. As such, we are now in a position to confirm that the property owner discharged a firearm into the air yesterday morning in relation to the break and enter complaint.


We want to remind the public that introducing a firearm or other weapon into a situation can be very dangerous. Our message around safety has not changed. Please secure the safety of yourself and your family, call 911 and pay attention/observe all details if you are able. If you can avoid a confrontation, please do so.

We have heard and understand the public’s concerns around crime and have implemented a number of crime strategies/initiatives within Saskatchewan including our crime reduction team, rural crime watch presentations and detachment-specific enforcement initiatives, among others.

We want to thank the public and news agencies for assisting us by sharing the information about the vehicle.
