On Friday, June 4th 2021 at 05:58 AM, 100 Mile House RCMP responded to an alarm call at the Bank of Montreal (BMO) located on Alder Avenue in 100 Mile House BC. Upon arrival, the officer observed a glass break into the main building of the bank.

After subsequently clearing the building and observing several doors, cabinets and desk drawers open, the officer was advised of a complaint near the Donex Pharmacy on Birth Avenue. Upon arrival there, a 27 year old local Caucasian male was located on the ground with drug paraphernalia in his possession and visible to the officer.

This man has been previously arrested for similar events in the area. Subsequent to arrest for possession of a controlled substance, the officer searched the backpack of the suspect and located a stamp belonging to BMO as well as several BMO envelopes. This man was then arrested for the break and enter to BMO and possession of stolen property.
