Assiniboia RCMP say a 52-year old man is in custody after police swarmed his home Wednesday.
RCMP were responding to a report of a distraught person who had barricaded himself inside a rural home east of Assiniboia.
Around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, investigators received information the man had access to several firearms in the home.
As a precaution, an RCMP emergency response team went to the home, along with police dog units from Regina and Swift Current, and Mounties from the Coronach, Gravelbourg and Assiniboia detachments.
Officers took the man into custody without incident shortly before 3 p.m.
Police are continuing to investigate.
