Four arrested, guns seized

Four people have been arrested in connection with a home invasion and an alleged assault at an Inn in Kamloops. 

Police were called to unit #17 of the Tournament Inn just before midnight Thursday. 

When police arrived, officers found a number of people still in the unit, all of which attempted to leave the unit seemingly to avoid contact with police.

Police had the area surrounded, all the occupants were arrested while exiting the unit.

Police later discovered that four people had originally broken into the unit to wait for the primary resident, who was allegedly assaulted upon his arrival.

Inside the unit, police found several loaded firearms that were all seized. 

Two men and two women were arrested and remain in custody. 

"Considering the firearms that were seized, we're very thankful to have received this 911 call and to have been able to prevent whatever these people intended to do with them," stated Staff Sgt. Mathias Van Laer 

All four individuals arrested are from Kamloops and known to police.
