Witness helps nab bad guy

An observant citizen was the downfall of an suspected thief in Kamloops over the weekend.

Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said a 39 year-old Kamloops man was arrested when he was spotted allegedly breaking into vehicles.

“On Feb. 3 at 1:15 a.m., an alert citizen on Springhill Drive called police to report that he could see a male trying the door handles of vehicles parked on the street and at one point saw the man get into a vehicle for a short time and then leave the vehicle,” said Shelkie

RCMP officers attended and located the suspect a short distance away.

He was arrested and found to be in possession of two backpacks, one of which was determined to have just been taken from a nearby vehicle.

“Kamloops RCMP are grateful to the citizen who called to report this suspicious activity,” said Shelkie. “He was an excellent witness who gave us a good description of the suspect and a direction of travel.”

The suspect was previously known to police.
