The vehicle, a grey older model Honda Civic, was reported stolen on Sept. 23, 2023 around 6:20 a.m., from a gas station on the 400-block of Paul Lake Road. On Sept. 26, around 6:25 a.m., Kamloops RCMP frontline officers attended the 1700-block of the East Trans Canada Highway, where the vehicle was observed heading toward a motel on the frontage road.

Officers attempted to stop the Honda, but it fled on the highway at a high rate of speed, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson. In the early hours of this morning, around 1:40 a.m., Thursday Sept. 28, a vehicle believed to be the same one was spotted again by police, this time on Victoria Street.

The Honda allegedly drove dangerously eastbound, entering the opposite lane of traffic and running a red light through the intersection of Battle Street and Columbia, before the officer lost sight of the vehicle.

We are releasing an image of the vehicle with the hope that someone will recognize and have information related to its whereabouts and activities, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson. The Honda is a common colour and model, and may be changing its license plates, but there is a chance someone observed a vehicle only recently show up in an area, or involved in suspicious activities, that causes them to believe it could be the same one.

Anyone with information related to these ongoing investigations is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2023-34967.
