The Lethbridge Regional Police Service is issuing this information and warning after careful deliberation of all related issues, including privacy concerns, in the belief that it is clearly in the public interest to inform members of the community of the release of Melanie Rose L’Hirondelle.
Residents are advised that the intent of this process is to enable members of the public to take suitable precautionary measures and not to embark on any form of vigilante action.
