File # Weekend report Dec. 9-12

The Kamloops RCMP Detachment responded to approximately 393 calls for service from Friday Dec. 9, to 9 a.m. on Dec. 12, 2022. Below are some highlights from those reports.

Break and enter interrupted


An attempt to break into a residence was foiled Friday evening, when the homeowner caught the suspect in the act.

On Friday Dec. 9, 2022, just after 6 p.m., Kamloops RCMP frontline officers responded to the 5000-block of the East Trans Canada Highway where an unknown suspect had broken into the garage, fought with the homeowner when confronted, then fled on a nearby walking path.

The Police Dog Service Unit located a flashlight and break-in tools nearby, but the suspect was gone. He is described as male, 5’10 to 6’, 35-45 years old, dressed in all dark clothing with what appeared to be a balaclava, exposing only his eyes.

Anyone with security footage or information related to this investigation is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2022-43703.

Stolen snowmobile recovered


Police located a stolen snowmobile, thanks to a call about a suspicious vehicle this weekend.

On Saturday Dec. 10, at approximately 3:25 p.m., frontline officers responded to the 1900-block of Curlew Road, where a suspicious truck was suspected of being associated to a trailer and snowmobile being hidden around the back of a property.

Police located the truck nearby and detained all those present. Further investigation revealed the snowmobile was stolen but did not appear linked to the truck.

The snowmobile was associated to a theft report from Vernon received earlier in the day. It was released to its proper owner.

Man arrested on 13th Street


Multiple police officers responded to a North Shore address for a report of a man with an axe, freaking out and smashing things.

On Dec. 10, 2022, around 10 a.m., police attended the 1100-block of 13th Street where a vehicle and house had been damaged. A suspect was located and arrested for offences related to threats, weapons, and mischief.

The suspect was later released with a court date and conditions; charge recommendation is anticipated as part of the ongoing investigation.
