Mounties search Campbellton area for man driving Mitsubishi Lancer

RCMP

RCMP in Campbellton are on the lookout for a man driving a white Mitsubishi Lancer.

RCMP Sgt. Rene Labbe tells the Acadie-Nouvelle the search is preventative in nature and that police believe he may be a danger to himself rather than the general public.

Posts on social media suggest the man may be in possession of firearms along with a list of people to whom he wants to cause harm.

It's business as usual at schools in the Francophone North-East District in Campbellton, Dalhousie, and Balmoral however students are not permitted to leave as a precaution.

The individual has been active on social media in recent weeks, allegedly verbally attacking several people as well as inviting them to physical confrontations.

The matter is still under investigation.
