The first day of June led to the arrest of several people in Kamloops who were wanted on warrants.
Arrest warrants from areas including Abbottsford, 100-Mile and Barriere were just some of the many executed in Kamloops on Tuesday June 1, 2021.
A trespassing call on the 400-block of McGill Road was one of the calls that led to the capture of a wanted person. Around 9 a.m., a Kamloops RCMP frontline officer attended the area for a report of people walking through backyards to campout behind a store on the 900-block of Columbia Street West.
While investigating the complaint, the officer discovered one of the men was wanted on a warrant for theft and obstruction. When the man was told he was under arrest, he allegedly fled, leading to a short foot pursuit and struggle. The man was further arrested for resisting and charges may be recommended following the investigation’s conclusion.
A 24-year-old Kamloops man was lodged in cells and later released with a court date.
Later in the day, around 2:40 p.m., a call to police regarding a shoplifter apprehended on the 700-block of Victoria Street led to the execution of several warrants on a 44-year-old Kamloops woman. The woman was wanted for theft out of Abbottsford; theft out of Barriere; theft and driving while prohibited out of Kamloops. She received a court date for June 17.
Shortly after around 3:30 p.m., police were back in the 700-block of Victoria Street for a request from 100 Mile RCMP to help execute an unendorsed warrant related to offences including assault with a weapon, unlawful confinement, extortion, and breach of release conditions.
When local frontline officers attempted to apprehend the man, he allegedly resisted and became combative. One officer was injured during the altercation, and received non-life threatening injuries, which required medical attention.
A 24-year-old Kamloops man was lodged in cells for court.
At night, around 9:17 p.m., proactive patrols on the frontage road in Valleyview led to an officer spotting a man wanted on an unendorsed warrant related to breaching a release order. A 39-year-old Kamloops man was arrested and received a release order for June 7.
