Police searching for a man in Grindelwald...anybody knows what's going on?

Just saw it on the news...but no further details can be derived from the article. Does anybody know more about this story?

Apparently, this must be a big thing as heavily armed police officers are checking every car leaving Grindelwald....as well as trains and buses.

According to another article I've read yesterday, 2 people were put under police protection after an altercation with the wanted person.

Let's keep in mind that the Bernese Kantonspolizei over the past few decades had some failures behind them, actually exactly in the Oberland. And now have to prove that they are able to cope, not least as the Canton of Berne now has TWO persons in the Bundesrat, and neither the jolly, pleasant popularist Mr Ogi, nor the most thoroughly boring Mr Schmid, but two competent but a bit confrontational persons (almost UN-Bernese ! ) . Beside the point that somebody uttering murder threats against hotel-owners would mobilize police all over the country, and most likely also in Austria, Bavaria, B-W, Alsace, Savoie, Piemonte, Lombardia etc .

First and foremost, let's keep in mind that in May Bernese Kantonspolizei lost one of their officers after he was shot by a man who made threats to some people.

Sounds like a young BeO bride may have elected to marry a man "outside of the town limits" thereby setting the wrath of the locals into gear.

Pitchforks have been raised and a hanging party set out to find the aforementioned "bride rustler". Wanted posters now available for download for iPad users.

There apparently is absolutely no news at present. Looks as if the Bern Kantonspolizei took its conclusions from previous affairs when they were far too informative
