Days after police closed some Coldstream roads as part of an investigation, a large police presence remained in the area.

Saturday evening officers were coming and going from a home on Kalamalka Road that had police tape strung across the driveway.

Several vehicles were towed from the property Saturday.

All police have said about the incident that originally drew RCMP to the area is that “frontline officers responded to a male reported to be in medical distress” early Thursday morning.
