Call 911 if you see suspicious people, police say
Ontario Provincial Police say people in Lanark County and the Sharbot Lake areas southwest of Ottawa should stay inside and lock their doors and windows as officers search for two armed people.
An emergency alert was issued around 12:15 p.m. It requested people in those areas call 911 if they see suspicious people.
The mayor of Carleton Place in Lanark County said police told him the alert does not affect that town.
Sharbot Lake is a village in Frontenac County, about 120 kilometres southwest of Ottawa.
Lanark County sits between Sharbot Lake and Ottawa. More than 75,000 people live in the county, which is just under 3,000 square kilometres in area, according to Statistics Canada.
More to come.
