On Thursday, RCMP charged a man who barricaded himself inside a McIntyre apartment block.
RCMP received a report of an assault in the McIntyre subdivision at 4:45 a.m. on Wednesday.
Police found the man had barricaded himself in an apartment along with two women.
RCMP believed he may have possessed a firearm, and the emergency response team was called.
Three hours later, the two women left the apartment of their own volition, jumping over the balcony.
A negotiator established communications with the suspect and, at 10:50 a.m., the man left the apartment peacefully.
Later, with a warrant, police searched the apartment.
An undisclosed weapon was found, but RCMP said it was not a firearm.
Alcohol and drugs are believed to be involved in the incident.
Lloyd Benedict Smarch has been charged with uttering threats, assault with a weapon and forcible confinement.
