No firearm found in 100 Mile House weapons complaint

RCMP respond to false alarm at South Cariboo Business Centre

On April 15, the 100 Mile House RCMP responded to a call of a potential weapons complaint at a building across the street from 100 Mile House Junior Secondary.

Officers were able to determine this complaint was unfounded and posed no threat to anyone at the school.

However. information revealed it may have stemmed from a disagreement between students from Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School (PSO).

The students involved have been identified and police are investigating.

Due to additional concerns raised by students, officers attended again today (April 16). It has been determined the concerns were in relation to the previous day’s events and not a new threat.

“As a result of a conversation between students, a number of individuals expressed concern that resulted in our officers attending the school. We would like to assure parents and students there is no threat or danger at Peter Skene Ogden Secondary,” says Staff Sergeant Blake Ward, 100 Mile House Detachment Commander.

“In this case, the people who had concerns did the right thing and called the police. We always want to err on the side of caution to ensure everyone is safe.”
