Bouvier has been in custody since he was arrested by the Saskatchewan RCMP Emergency Response (ERT) team. The ERT team was headed to Meadow Lake to execute a search warrant on April 19 at a home on the 500 block of 6 Avenue West in response to reports of multiple threats with firearms when they received another call about an armed man at a home on the 200 block of 2nd Street West. Bouvier was arrested at the second residence, as was Monica Bouvier. 

RCMP haven’t said whether the incidents in the two homes on the same evening are connected.

The ERT arrested three individuals, including Cassidy Regan, 29, at the first home after seizing a weapon and a small amount of cocaine. Regan is charged with robbery and several firearms charges as well as breach of probation. Regan was denied bail in May. He is scheduled to appear in Meadow Lake Provincial Court on June 22 to elect how he wants to be tried. 

While the ERT was at the first home, the Meadow Lake RCMP went to the second home and secured and contained the residence until the ERT could obtain a search warrant and arrive. At the second home they found a woman with a sawed-off .22 calibre rifle, a collapsible baton and several knives. At this home police arrested Cory Bouvier, as well as Monica Bouvier

Monica Bouvier is charged with weapons offences, robbery, mischief and obstruction of a peace officer. She was released from custody in April and is scheduled to appear in Meadow Lake Provincial Court on July 13 to enter a plea.

Cory Bouvier is charged with robbery and several firearms offences.  At his June 1 appearance he consented to remand. His trial is set for July 16 in Meadow Lake Provincial Court.
