Three people have been charged in relation to kidnapping with a firearm and assault from Stoney Nakoda First Nation.

Corporal Troy Savinkoff says they received a call about an abduction on January 24, that a woman's son was going to be held ransom for some money.

"It had to do with some illicit drug activity."

Savinkoff says they were fairly lucky in locating all of the suspects.

"From our investigation we determined a residence that might have one of the suspects; upon attending that residence, we also located what we believe was the vehicle involved in the offense and we waited outside the residence and soon after the vehicle left the residence with all of our suspects pretty much in the vehicle."

Beside the suspects in the vehicle RCMP made an additional arrest back at the house; three people are equally charged including 36 year old Georgina Twoyoungmen, 23 year old Lyle Bearspaw, and 26 year old Crieg Amos. RCMP are still looking for one more person involved with the file whose name is not being released along with the victim's.

Cpl. Savinkoff says they believe once the suspects knew RCMP were involved, the suspect was released with minor injuries.

All three suspects were denied bail and made their first court appearance on January 31.
