As the result of a multi-agency effort, Jason Beaudry has been transferred from Cranbrook to a treatment facility in the lower mainland.
Beaudry arrived in Cranbrook late last Tuesday where he was greeted by officers of the Cranbrook RCMP Detachment.
Over the following days Cranbrook RCMP conducted 24 hour surveillance on Beaudry while efforts were made to find vacancy at a proper treatment facility.
“Mr. Beaudry was transferred to a location better equipped to assist him with his treatment efforts,” Staff Sgt. Dave Dubnyk, Cranbrook RCMP, said.
Once the treatment facility was identified, the Ktunaxa Nation in conjunction with Street Angels graciously funded Beaudry’s return trip to the lower mainland.
Staff Sgt. Dubnyk advises that members from the RCMP General Duty and Plain Clothes Units along with the Regional Crime Reduction Unit closely monitored Beaudry’s movements the entire time he was in Cranbrook .
“Local residents were never at risk” Dubnyk noted.
