The Mayor of Dawson Creek says he’s relieved that the RCMP has a person in custody, relating to the EnCana Bombings.

At around 8:00 a.m. on Friday, RCMP members from E and K Divisions, led by the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team, began searching a large rural property located near Hythe, Alberta.

One male associated with the property has been taken into custody. His name cannot be released since he has not been formally charged.

There’s widespread speculation that the property belongs to Wiebo Ludwig, who was responsible for similar pipeline bombings ten years ago. But Mike Bernier says he hasn’t heard who is in custody.
