A large police presence involving Kamloops City, Tk’emlúps Rural, Southeast District Traffic, and Crime Reduction Unit officers saw two men arrested following a carjacking report yesterday afternoon.

On Sept. 6, 2023, around 4:20 p.m., Kamloops RCMP frontline officers were called to a gas station parking lot on the 800-block of Columbia Street West, where a woman reported being robbed of her vehicle and phone at knifepoint. The suspects fled in her black Mazda.

Thanks to the response of multiple police units throughout the city, police quickly located the vehicle just off of Hwy 5 and surrounded it on G and M Road, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson. Two Kamloops men in their 30s were arrested and held in custody.

Both men are scheduled to appear in court for a bail hearing later today, Sept. 7.

If anyone witnessed or has information related to this investigation, including dashcam footage or security video, please call the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2023-32322.
