Kamloops RCMP respond to 3 separate incidents involving suspected drugs over the weekend

Kamloops RCMP were busy over the weekend with nearly 300 calls for service between Friday night and Monday morning.

Three separate incidents involving suspected drugs were of particular concern for officers.

Just before 3 am on Saturday, officers received a report that involved a man who had alleged entered a locked and fenced compound and broke a vehicle window in the process.

The suspect was being watched remotely via the building's security system.

Officers responded to the residence on the 100-block of Briar Avenue and were quick to arrest a male suspect.

During the initial search, a small amount of suspected meth and fentanyl was allegedly uncovered.

The man was taken to the cells and later released with a court date and conditions – charge recommendations are anticipated in the coming days.

If you saw anything in the area or may know more information, give the Kamloops RCMP a call at (250)828-3000 and reference file number 2022-2488.

In the early hours of Sunday morning, shortly after 4:30 am, police received a shoplifting report at a store on the 900-block of 8th Street.

However, things took a different turn when officers uncovered a bag of suspected drugs during their investigation.

The officers allegedly found suspected fentanyl and paraphernalia that is often associated with drug trafficking. This investigation is ongoing.

Anyone who may have information on this incident is asked to call Kamloops RCMP and reference file number 2022-2416.

Later that evening, around 8 pm, Kamloops police uncovered drugs, weapons and a wanted person.

Officers were patrolling near the 700-block of Victoria Street Sunday evening when they conducted a traffic stop on what they believe to be a stolen vehicle.

When officers looked inside the vehicle they found alleged drug paraphernalia and an unresponsive female passenger who appeared to be intoxicated. The occupants were arrested for drug possession.

Upon further investigation, police located suspected drugs, including fentanyl, brass knuckles, a baton and a large amount of cash – all of which were seized.

The passenger was also on a warrant which officers executed.

Although the vehicle was not stolen, the male driver was issued a 24-hour suspension from driving for drug impairment and the vehicle was towed.

This investigation is also ongoing and anyone with information can call the detachment and reference file number 2022-2469.
