Residents from Onanole, Manitoba and Surrounding Area Recognized for their Support During August 2018 Manhunt

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.
