Clearwater and Clinton break and enter suspects arrested in Savona

October 06, 2016 - 11:54 AM

CLEARWATER - Kamloops RCMP have arrested a man and woman in Savona in connection to a break and enter in Clearwater and attempted break and enter in Clinton.

Clearwater RCMP were called to a break and enter on Saturday, Oct. 1, according to a RCMP media release. Thieves made off with a large number of stamps.

On Wednesday, Oct. 5, a woman was reported to police trying to sell stamps in Savona. RCMP located a suspect vehicle and took a man and woman into custody. Police were able to determine the vehicle, a rental, was also associated with an attempted break and enter in Clinton at the government liquor store on Oct. 4.

Both suspects had warrants out for their arrest. The woman, who gave police a fake name at first, had an outstanding warrant for her arrest, while the man had a warrant out after he missed a court date earlier in the day.

Both face a variety of charges, police say.
