RCMP engage in police action in Beacon Hill

Fort McMurray, AB, Canada / MIX 103.7

Wood Buffalo RCMP diverted traffic in Beacon Hill away from the intersection where Beacon Hill Drive meets itself on Tuesday night for a brief period.

Mix News Reporter Lauren O’Hare witnessed police with firearms out in the area, and listeners reported that officers were watching one house in particular in the area.

RCMP Corporal Jay Jestings said police were concerned for the well-being of an individual, and there is no danger to public safety.

“Members were up there just making sure this individual was okay,” he said. “We’re still currently dealing with it.”

He added that the individual was “under observation,” but could not provide any details beyond that. A witness reported on Facebook that a man was escorted away in handcuffs.

Traffic is no longer blocked in the area.
