The Regional Police HRO Unit, in partnership with the Edmonton Police Service, continues to investigate and is advising the public to be aware of Stanley’s potential presence in southern Alberta.
The public is asked to look at Mr. Stanley’s photo, be aware that he may still be in the city and call police immediately if the suspect is seen. Stanley poses a significant risk to the community and we are advising everyone to be vigilant about their safety, but not to take any vigilante action.”
