File # 2023-44277

A man and a woman are in custody following a large police presence on McGill Road this afternoon.

On Dec. 18, 2023, reports received of a stolen truck driving dangerously toward Kamloops from Vernon led to a police response involving multiple officers, just before 2 p.m. The stolen vehicle was found on fire at the Sahali Mall shortly after it entered Kamloops, and just before two suspects were arrested.

An elementary school in the area was placed in a brief hold and secure as a suspect attempted to flee from officers, only to be caught by the Police Dog Service (PDS) Unit, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson. Thanks to the quick response and teamwork of multiple police units, which included RCMP Air Services, North Okanagan RCMP, and Kamloops Detachment frontline officers, Targeted Enforcement Unit, and PDS, the police presence was swift and effective, and two people known to police are currently in custody as part of the ongoing investigation.

Anyone who witnessed, has video or dash cam footage, or information related to this incident is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2023-44277.
