File # Weekend report Dec. 2-5
The Kamloops RCMP Detachment responded to approximately 315 calls for service from Friday Dec. 2, to 9 a.m. on Dec. 5, 2022. Below are some highlights from those reports.
Man arrested on warrant, stolen property recovered
Friday afternoon patrols led police to a vehicle reported stolen out of Jasper, and to a man wanted on an arrest warrant.
On Dec. 2, 2022, just before 2 p.m., an officer on the 1600-block of Centennial Drive observed a white Infiniti with an Alberta license plate that indicated it was stolen. The officer stopped the vehicle and arrested its driver for possession of stolen property.
Police checks also indicated the man was wanted on an arrest warrant and he was held in custody to appear in court. The investigation into the stolen property is separate and ongoing.
Stolen vehicle, erratic driver report
The Kamloops RCMP Detachment is looking for a suspect, following a report of a stolen vehicle, linked to an erratic driver and indecent act complaint.
On Saturday Dec. 3, 2022, around 4:25 p.m., police received a report of a black truck stolen sometime after 9 p.m. Friday, from the back alley of the 700-block of Battle Street. Shortly after receiving the report, police were called to a suspicious vehicle refuelling on the 200-block of Tranquille Road, in which the driver appeared intoxicated and allegedly exposed himself; the truck matched the description and license plate of the one reported stolen. Around 5:45 p.m., the same vehicle allegedly failed to stop for a roadblock on Ord Road, then was later observed driving through a red light on Notre Dame Drive.
The truck is described as a black 2018 GMC pickup, BC license plate PA511W, with a dent to the passenger side front and rear fender. Anyone who observed the truck or has information related to this investigation is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2022-43037.
