A newcomer to Kamloops has been arrested after allegedly going on a five-hour window-smashing spree in the city.

Police said they received 11 reports of windows being broken on Columbia Street, Springhill Crescent, McGill Road and Arrowstone, Notre Dame, Summit and Dalhousie Drives.

The first one came in at 1 am this morning, before a man, who police said is “new to Kamloops,” was arrested at 6 am.

A pharmacy was among the businesses to have its windows damaged during the episode of mischief.

Two vehicles were also damaged, police said.

“With assistance from a[n] RCMP police dog and a witness, officers located and arrested the 38-year-old man in the 1300-block of Summit Drive. The man, who is new to Kamloops, is expected to appear in court later today,” Sgt. Janelle Shoihet said.

She added: “We are asking anyone who was a witness or has video surveillance to call the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3600 and cite file 2023-40889.”
