CALGARY – Two RCMP officers in Banff have been charged after an on-duty incident.

Constable Cutcliffe is charged with being unlawfully in a dwelling.

The charge suggests the officer may have been in a private residence without permission or a warrant.

Meanwhile, Contstable Dumon-Fontaine has been charged with obstruction of justice.

A news release issued on Wednesday says the officers were charged on June 10th, 2014, after an incident on June 26th, 2013.

Very few other details about the incident are known.

Constables Cutcliffe and Dumon-Fontaine have been suspended from duty pending the resolution of the charges against them.

The officers are scheduled to appear in Canmore Provincial Court on August 13th.

An internal RCMP Code of Conduct investigation has been ordered and will be completed upon resolution of the court process.
