The Kamloops RCMP Detachment is looking for information after a resident was woken this weekend by an intruder.

On Saturday Feb. 3, 2024, around 4:15 a.m., Kamloops RCMP Detachment frontline officers were called to the 1400-block of Cannel Drive for a report of two men who had broken into a home. According to the report, the suspects left when confronted by one of the residents. No one was injured and nothing appeared to be taken during the incident. The Police Dog Service Unit attended, but no one was located.

As part of the investigation, police reviewed nearby security footage which showed two people running from the area at two separate times that morning: just after 2:15 a.m., and again a couple of hours later, just before police were contacted around 4:12 a.m., at which point the suspects had a little more distance between them.

The images are not clear, but we are releasing one to the public in an effort to try and identify who the people might be, and also request that those in the neighbourhood check any dash cam or security footage to see if it captured anything that could be related, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP Detachment spokesperson. Maybe two people were observed running to another residence or to a vehicle nearby. It’s possible something was recorded around either of those times that may have seemed insignificant initially.

One of the suspects observed was described as:

Anyone with information that may be related is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2024-3418.
