Hudson Bay Man to Appear in Court Thursday on Charges From Alleged Arson

A Hudson Bay man is in custody in connection with an arson in that town.

Last Wednesday afternoon, Mounties attended a home in the Leason Trailer Court, trying to locate a man wanted on outstanding warrants.

Officers heard a bang from an outbuilding and observed smoke coming from it.

They found the suspect and gas and propane tanks inside, and managed to remove them and extinguish a small fire before anyone could be injured.

30-year-old Matthew Barker faces numerous charges, and will return to court on Thursday.
