Police are looking to identify a theft suspect who was accompanied by a school age child during the alleged offence.
On May 10, 2023, around 10:35 a.m., the Kamloops RCMP Detachment received a report of a theft from a business in the Valleyview Square, the 2100-block of the East Trans Canada Highway. A man allegedly stole items, including a red Fill-Rite Fuel Pump, and then left in a truck with stolen license plates.
The suspect was in the company of a school-age boy, approximately eight to 10 years old, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson.
