Not content with the results of their first search of Bruce Montague's
home, the OPP requested and was granted a second search warrant for the
Bruce Montague remained in jail, his release blocked by police and crown
prosecutor Peter Keen. Ongoing negotiations between Keen and Montague's
lawyer, Ed Burlew, went on all day.
Ontario Provincial Police believed Bruce still had firearms in his
possession. Their initial warrant was valid for 48 hours, although Donna
was allowed back into her home after 36 hours.
CUFOA's Ed Hudson explains: "They claim to have registration slips for
firearms they did not recover in the first search. They also believe Bruce
is in possession of prohibited firearms. They executed a second search
warrant last night."
Donna Montague and her family were forced from their home a second
time. This warrant was valid for 24 hours. Once again, Donna Montague was
not given a copy of the search warrant, nor was she even allowed to see it.
Police apparently were not satisfied with the results of their second search.
Hudson said Bruce Montague was cooperating with police, and as a result of
that cooperation was released at 4:30pm from the Sioux Lookout jail cell
where he had been transferred to the previous day.
Bruce Montague is home tonight with his family for the first time in 10
days. He is happy to be spending time with his loved ones and will deal
with the press in a few days.
