Police emergency response team dispatched to Okanagan town

The team was in Lumby Saturday, March 9 to arrest a man

Despite an emergency response team being dispatched to Lumby over the weekend, Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP are providing little information on the arrest.

“The South East District ERT team was in Lumby on Saturday (March 9) where they assisted front line officers with the arrest of a male,” said RCMP Const. Kelly Brett. “The arrest was made without incident and further details will not be released at this time.”
