Police Attend Scene Of Small Protest In Chase

Chase RCMP say that they attended the scene of a small protest by members of the Adams Lake Indian Band on Tuesday.

Police were called around 8AM about a group of people blocking the Pine Street Bridge with logs and a fire.

An RCMP release says that an adult male was arrested at the scene on charges unrelated to the event.

Police say that the protesters moved to the North end of the bridge, and that traffic has been getting through.

Requests for comment from the Adams Lake Indian Band on the purpose of that protest have yet to see a response.
