ALAMEDA - A report of an alleged probation breach turned into a situation in which a man is now facing charges for attempted murder.
In a news release, the Saskatchewan RCMP said that on Dec. 7 at approximately 3:45 p.m., the Carnduff RCMP received a report of an adult male breaching conditions of his probation in Alameda.
Officers responded to a residence in the town. The RCMP says the man answered the door and the officers told him he was under arrest.
“The male did not comply and went into the house and retrieved a firearm,” the RCMP said in the news release. “An altercation occurred which included the discharge of a firearm by the responding police officers.”
No physical injuries were reported and the man was then arrested without further incident.
After investigation by the Saskatchewan RCMP’s General Investigation Section, Theodore Allan Brycks, 67, of Alameda has been charged with two counts of attempted murder of a police officer under Section 239(1)(a) of the Criminal Code, and four counts of failing to comply with a probation order under Section 733.1(1) of the Criminal Code.
He was scheduled to appear in Regina Provincial Court on Dec. 9. The charges have not been proven in court.
As this matter is before the courts, the RCMP says it has no additional details to share at this time.
