“Five separate police files were concluded as a result of these arrests,” says Sergeant Sarah Parke, Acting Detachment Commander, Bonnyville RCMP.” “One call from a concerned citizen assisted with this investigation. No call is too small and we want to thank the public for being on the lookout for suspicious activity.”
