Two more men were arrested by Meadow Lake RCMP in a violent home invasion last week that sent three men to hospital.

During the home invasion, four men forced their way into a home on Sept. 7. The victims were treated at the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Michael Poitras, 27, and Grand Poitras, 37, were arrested. On Monday, Sept. 11, John Iron, 29, was arrested and will be appearing in Meadow Lake Provincial Court on Thursday, Sept. 14. The fourth suspect, Waylon Sylvestre remains at large and is wanted on numerous criminal charges. RCMP encourages anyone with information on his whereabouts to contact the Meadow Lake detachment or Crimestoppers immediately.

Arrest made in Montgrand case

Thanks to tips from the public, an arrest was made in the case of 31-year-old Ryan Montgrand, who had been at large since mid-August. He was wanted on charges of assault, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and possession of a concealed weapon.

Meadow Lake RCMP partner with local Community Safety Officer

Also last week, a partnership was struck between Meadow Lake Community Safety Officer, Joe Hallahan and Const. Connor McLeod of the local RCMP. The two have worked together to enforce some specific traffic issues in the community, namely when motorists turn across the solid centre line, which is an illegal traffic maneuver.

In a media release, Sgt. Ryan How said local RCMP receive repeated reports from business owners on Centre Street about congestion frustration.

“The partnership with the CSO and the RCMP is mutually beneficial and members enjoy working alongside with Officer Hallahan,” said How.
