On July 18, 2019, officers from the Saskatchewan RCMP CRT and Onion Lake RCMP noticed several individuals outside a residence in the community of Onion Lake. The officers attended the residence to inquire about an individual who was wanted by police on numerous warrants relating to crimes against the person and firearm offences.
