A woman from the Dominican Republic who was arrested by RCMP in Winnipeg and turned over to Canada Border Services has been released, bringing an apparent end to a bizarre story.
Border Services spokeswoman Lisa White says Leonarda Bonilla Nunez has been freed because she's not violating immigration laws.
White says the woman has community and financial support, a valid visitor's visa and a ticket to return home.
Bonilla Nunez was arrested not long after her husband, Santos Nunez, jumped out of a moving vehicle and ran into the bush near Arran, Sask., just two days after arriving on a visitor's visa.
He was found dehydrated and sick in a field south of Thunder Hill, Man., but Border Services determined he hadn't violated immigration laws.
A source told The Canadian Press the couple will be staying in Edmonton.
