Hudson Bay Man Accused of Arson Has a New Court Date

A Hudson Bay man has appeared in court again, in connection with an arson in that town.

On May 12th, 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 was in Melfort Court yesterday (Mon), where he was remanded in custody to July 27th.
