The Kamloops RCMP Detachment is requesting the public’s assistance in locating hard-body armour stolen during a string of mischief to vehicles overnight.

On Oct. 12, 2023, around 4:45 a.m., Kamloops RCMP frontline officers attended a commercial location on the 900-block of Notre Dame Drive, where a fully marked police SUV from a neighbouring detachment had been damaged significantly. Further investigation revealed a hard-body armour vest was also taken from the vehicle.

The SUV was towed and secured for examination by our Forensic Identification Service Unit as part of the ongoing investigation, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson. While police officers, including those from our General Investigations Support Team, continue to work on identifying a suspect, we are asking the public to please be on the lookout for the police issued body armour stolen from the vehicle.

A few hours later, police received another report advising them that several more vehicles had been damaged around 11:30 p.m. on Oct. 11.

Two suspects were observed as part of the investigation. The first one is described as wearing all black with a maroon hood; the second had a black and white Adidas style jacket with blue jeans.

Anyone with information related to these investigations is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment 250-828-3000 and reference file 2023-36896 or 2023-36908.
