Selkirk RCMP investigating new online threats

Selkirk, Manitoba – The Selkirk RCMP is actively investigating new online threats. Officers with the Selkirk RCMP have increased their presence at schools throughout the community.

“The RCMP reminds everyone that these types of online threats are taken very seriously and charges will be pursued against anyone participating in this type of online activity” said Sgt. Paul Manaigre of the Manitoba RCMP. “We ask that students and residents in Selkirk only share facts from trusted sources such as the school district, police or city officials. Many people are experiencing fear and uncertainty over these incidents and the spreading of false information and rumours is not helpful.”

At this time, it appears that the new posts are related to the threats that were sent out on December 2 in which two people have been charged and remanded into custody.
