File # Weekend report Nov. 4-7

The Kamloops RCMP Detachment responded to approximately 384 calls for service from Friday Nov. 4, to 9 a.m. on Nov. 7, 2022. Below are some highlights from those reports.

Robbery attempt


Police are investigating an attempted robbery report on the North Shore Sunday night.

On Nov. 6, 2022, around 9:15 p.m., a woman was walking through a parking lot on the 700-block of Tranquille Road when a man approached her from behind and tried to steal her bag unsuccessfully, then departed toward Tranquille. She was uninjured.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian man, 5’7, wearing a red hat, black puffy jacket, and dark pants.

Anyone with information related to this investigation is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000.

Armed and barricaded report


A woman was arrested after police responded to a report of a woman who had barricaded herself in a room and was making threats involving a firearm.

On Nov. 4, 2022, around 3:35 a.m., Kamloops RCMP frontline officers attended a residence on the 800-block of Newman Street and evacuated it, as well as a neighbouring address, as a precaution. Police made contact with the woman, who was cooperative and unarmed.

She was lodged in cells until sober, then released without process following the investigation’s conclusion.

Unfounded break and enter


A report of a home invasion on Ord Road Friday night turned out to be false.

On Nov. 4, 2022 around 5:20 a.m., police responded to the address where a woman stated that someone wearing a black hoodie was inside her home. A similar report was received at the same address about 12 hours earlier.

Officers attended and confirmed no home invasion had occurred. The resident was arrested and lodged in cells until sober to prevent continuation of the offence.
