RCMP are investigating whether there have been credible online threats to officers who were at a rally at Mirror’s Whistle Stop Cafe last weekend.
“Alberta RCMP have learnt of images circulating on social media purportedly showing RCMP vehicles and members in the crosshairs of a rifle scope during this past weekend’s rally at the Whistle Stop Cafe in Mirror,” said police in a Thursday morning news release.
“These images are still being investigated to determine if they were a credible threat to members or an act to intimidate members on scene.”
Anyone with information on this incident should call the Alberta RCMP’s Central Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit at 780-890-2645. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the “P3 Tips” app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.
Despite pouring rain and a pre-emptive court injunction, hundreds gathered outside the Mirror café Saturday, for the “Save Alberta Campout Protest.”
Whistle Stop owner Chris Scott was arrested by RCMP on Saturday.
Two weeks ago, hundreds of people gathered near Bowden, for a pre-advertised maskless “No More Lockdowns’” protest rodeo. Ty and Gail Northcott were later charged under the Public Health Act and are due in Red Deer provincial court on Monday.
