RCMP members from E and K Divisions led by the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) are currently conducting a criminal code search warrant on a large rural property belonging to Wiebo Ludwig located near Hythe, Alberta to search for evidence relating to the Dawson Creek bombings.  Investigators have a search warrent authorized for five days. 

In a statement issued today by the  RCMP, Supt. Lloyd Plante, Assistant Criminal Operations Officer for the RCMP’s National Security Program in British Columbia, says  "We cannot say what we are looking for specifically, or what information led us to the location, but we have followed a trail of evidence that ultimately led to the execution of the search warrant."

RCMP Spokesperson Tim Shields says a man in his 50s or 60s was taken into custody around 8 a.m. this morning on the farm about 25 kilometres east of the B.C.-Alberta boundary. 

About a dozen officers are now searching the property.
