On May 7, 2021, Saskatchewan RCMP officers conducted three search warrants, two in the Town of Kindersley and one in the Town of Eatonia.

As a results of these searches, officers seized two long-barrelled firearms and one sawed-off firearm from a business in Kindersley and one sawed-off firearm with ammunition and one loaded firearm from a residence in Eatonia. None of the firearms was legally possessed.
