Flin Flon RCMP have made arrests after threats were uttered on social media
On Sunday Flin Flon RCMP received numerous reports of mischief to vehicles and property throughout Flin Flon. Several individuals took to a local Flin Flon Facebook page to vent about the mischief to property. That venting quickly escalated into hateful and threatening language against residents of First Nations communities.
The RCMP report they take these matters very seriously and immediately launched an investigation.
Two of the three female suspects, a 32-year-old female from Flin Flon and a 25-year-old female from Denare Beach have been arrested by RCMP for Uttering Threats and Public Incitement of Hatred. A third arrest is pending for the same charges. All three suspects are cooperating with police.
The RCMP cannot release the names of the two females arrested as the charges have not been sworn before a court of law.
Many politicians and members of the First Nations community have openly condemned these social media postings.
The investigation continues.
