Man wanted on robbery-related warrant arrested in Kamloops on Monday

A man wanted in connection to a robbery was arrested after being found unresponsive in a vehicle in the downtown area.

RCMP officers were called to a parking lot on the 400-block of 10th Avenue on Monday around 3:30 pm.

When they arrived on the scene, they found the man in a Honda Pilot, which was later reported as stolen.

Cpl. Crystal Evelyn, a spokesperson for the detachment, says the officers were able to turn off the vehicle and recognized the man as being wanted on a warrant related to a robbery in August.

“He was held in custody for a bail hearing, during which he was released with a next court appearance date for Feb. 22, 2024,” Cpl. Evelyn said.

During a search of the vehicle, two long guns were found and seized.

An investigation into prohibited driving, unauthorized possession of a firearm, and breach of release order is ongoing, as well as a separate one into the theft of motor vehicle report.

The vehicle was impounded for seven days and the suspect received a 24-hour driving prohibition related to drug impairment under the Motor Vehicle Act.

Anyone with video, dash camera footage, or information connected to this investigation is asked to contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at (250) 828-3000 and reference file 2024-5082.
