Calgary police were unable to provide many details about their presence in Balzac on Monday, only stating that it was part of a major crimes investigation.

"We are searching a rural property north of the city [of Calgary]. We are unable to release details about which case this search is connected to or what we are searching for,"  a Calgary Police spokesperson wrote in an email.

Residents reported seeing what they described as multiple forensics units at a property across from the Century Downs Racetrack and Casino, concentrated across from the casino entrance.

Calgary police added that they would provide updates should they find something that progresses or advances an investigation.
