Manitoba RCMP showed their thanks to several residents from the Onanole, Manitoba area for their support during a massive manhunt last August.
They awarded Certificates of Appreciation today (Thurs).
On the evening of August 29th, 2018, Mounties responded to a report of a break-in at a rural property, when shots were fired, hitting one officer in the back of the head, while another officer was left with PTSD.
It triggered a massive manhunt that ended the next day in Neepawa.
An 18-year prison term was given to Therae Racette-Beaulieu, of the Sandy Bay First Nation, who pleaded guilty earlier this year to charges from the incident.
RCMP say it was truly a community effort with businesses opening early and staying up late, provided accomodations, food and gasoline for officers to refuel and everyone offering words of encouragement and support.
