A threat call on Queens Bay in Thompson was answered by Thompson RCMP approximately forty minutes later.
Two male suspects moved toward two females, matured 53 and 55, compromised them, professed to have a blade, and escaped by walking. The victims did not sustain any physical harm. It was believed that the involved suspects were the same men from the previous incident.
At the scene, officers and Police Dog Services initiated patrols. Two men who had fled on foot were located by officers. Shortly after that, one of the men was taken into custody by the police, and the police service dog Linkin found a bag that was thought to have been left behind by the suspect. The sack contained more than $3000.00 in real money and a little amount of cocaine.
