ARGENTA, B.C. - The British Columbia RCMP say they are trying to negotiate a peaceful end to a "dynamic situation" at a remote cabin in the Kootenays after officers tried to execute a search warrant.
The Mounties say the incident began unfolding at about 7 p.m. Thursday near the north end of Kootenay Lake, close to the small community of Argenta.
The RCMP say the subject of the search warrant is known to them and wanted by police.
They say when the male suspect was confronted by officers, he fled inside the cabin.
Because it is in a remote area, no properties have been evacuated.
